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 Dodge County. Volunteers make a positive difference in Dodge County lives and communities by maintaining multiple educational gardens in Juneau and Horicon, providing youth programs, teaching educational programs to many social and civic organizations, and more. Through hours of community service by answering diagnostic questions, educating the public on horticultural topics, growing and donating food to local pantries, beautifying community spaces, conducting workshops, and more, these volunteers work tirelessly 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, find us on the Dodge County Master Gardener Association Facebook or Instagram sites or call the Extension Dodge County office at 920-386-3790. If inclined, send a thank you card to 127 East Oak Street, Juneau, WI 53039. Find out more information about the Master Gardener Program at: mastergardener.extension.wisc.edu
