Master Gardener Volunteer Week: April 5-9, 2021
The Wisconsin Master Gardener Program will be celebrating Master Gardener Volunteer Week April 5-9, 2021. Master Gardener Volunteers are an important part of University of Wisconsin-Madison Extension Lincoln County. Volunteers make a positive difference in Lincoln County lives and communities through working with residents at Pine Crest Nursing Home, growing vegetables to donate to food pantry and senior living homes, renovating native plantings to protect water quality and provide pollinator habitat, and maintaining ornamental gardens around Merrill. Through these and many more activities, Master Gardener Volunteers work tirelessly on community service projects to make Wisconsin an incredible place to live.
Wednesday, April 7, is “Thank a Master Gardener Volunteer Day.” Extension wants to recognize all of our Master Gardener Volunteers for their dedication and contributions to Wisconsin. Join us by making a phone call, writing a note, or just saying “Thank you!” to a Master Gardener Volunteer on April 7th! To thank your local Master Gardener Volunteers, call the Extension Lincoln County office at 715-539-1072. If inclined, send a thank you card to 801 North Sales Street, Suite 101, Merrill, WI 54452.
