Master Gardener Program Celebrates Volunteer Week

(Juneau) Monday kickoffs Volunteer Week with the Wisconsin Master Gardener Program. Officials with the Wisconsin-Madison Extension Dodge County say Master Gardener Volunteers play an important role in the region. They say volunteers maintain multiple educational programs in Juneau and Horicon, provide youth programs and teach educational programs to many social and civic organizations. Master Gardener Volunteers commit to hours of community by answering diagnostic questions, educating the public on horticulture topics, growing and donating food to local pantries conduct workshops and more. This Wednesday (April 7th) is “Thank a Master Gardener Volunteer Day.” Extension officials say the public can thank their dedication by making a phone call, writing a note or just say “thank you” to a Master Gardener Volunteer.
