Master Gardener Agriculture Center Renovation Project
The focus of this ongoing project will be to renovate the existing landscape at the Fairfield County Ag Center with new plant material and label plantings for visitors to the Ag Center to learn more about plant combinations being used. This project is funded by the Fairfield County Commissioners.
MGV's will be challenged with this effort as we will need to research deer resistant plants, look for plants that will be pleasing to the public as well as easy to maintain. MGV's will be responsible for installing, weeding, watering and maintaing the plants thoughout the growing season. In 2020, during limited work days 12 MGV’s donated 87 hours of volunteer service to the upkeep of the landscape at the Fairfield County Ag Center.
The Ag Center is the place where many farmers come to conduct their business and the home of Master Gardener meetings and training hence, we "MGV's" want the Ag Center to be a showcase of our efforts.
