Happy Holidays!

Here in Griffin, we  have taken a few minutes to reflect on this year and those who are near and dear to us. I have enjoyed getting to know so many of you all over Georgia, learning about your projects and the things about gardening that are special to you.
This year has been a whirlwind for the Georgia Master Gardener Extension Volunteer Program. We have seen new policy updates from the University, and you are getting to know me as a new State Coordinator. We have had Advanced Training classes, newfangled communication tools (like this blog), and a few growing pains.

We appreciate the countless hours you have invested in partnering with Cooperative Extension to make your communities better places through landscaping and gardening. We thank you for staying with us as we explore new directions for our volunteer program.

We hope that you will keep growing with us in 2013! We have lots more trainings, trips, and fun new ways to learn and share coming in the new year.

May you each be blessed with happy, healthy New Year!

  2. Sheri, I enjoyed meeting you at the reception for you at the state botanical garden earlier last summer. Krissy had commended you highly to me, and I look forward to connecting with you on future occasions. I am a Rabun County resident (NE corner of GA) and have affiliated with the Habersham Co. MGs since Rabun has no MG org. currently.

    Best wishes to you and Krissy in the new year!
