New River Master Gardeners

Welcome to the New River Master Gardeners. Formed in 2000, we represent Fayette, Nicholas, Raleigh, and Summers Counties. We are a volunteer organization that provides educational opportunities for people interested in gardening and growing plants. We generally meet on the third Thursday of each month. Meetings often include educational opportunities, club business, community project involvement, and plant and seed exchanges.
