The Dodge County Master Gardener Association and Extension Dodge County announce the opening of the Ask a Master Gardener Helpline. Certified Master Gardener Volunteers will answer your questions about horticultural topics Tuesday mornings from 9 am-12 pm and Thursday afternoons from 1 pm-4 pm. The Help Line is open during the growing season: May 7-September 5. Clients can send inquiries via email to email@example.com, call 920-386-3790, or come to the Dodge County Administration Building, 127 E Oak Street, Juneau, Room 1E.
Helpline volunteers can assist gardeners with identifying flowering and non-flowering plants, trees and shrubs, vegetables, insects or plant diseases. Clients are asked to bring along photos to help with the identification of specific problems. Volunteers also help with general gardening practices, information needed to make and keep gardens healthy, growing and beautiful.
The Dodge County Master Gardeners meet on the fourth Thursday of the month and host educational programs on a wide variety of horticultural topics. Master Gardeners assist UW-Extension staff in sharing horticultural information with the public. They work on a wide array of projects in the Dodge County area by providing gardening support and education to community organizations like nursing homes, schools, historical societies, parks and youth programs.
