- Took the Master Gardener Class through

Spring 2006. Served as a VCE Master Gardener Volunteer
as through 2009. I completed 50 hours of
community service by May 2007 to become a Master Gardener. Each year
while I served I completed at least 20 hours of community service to maintain
my status as an active Master Gardener. I am no longer
officially a Master Gardener but I still like to garden!
Working on getting my
yard into shape. To the right is a picture of me in part of my garden
in the summer of 2005.
We planted the crepe myrtle that summer. I had very good luck with my
basil that year (in the foreground) and you can also see some
tomatoes (to the right) and flowers. Update 2014: I need
to post more garden pictures. The crepe myrtle has grown quite a bit since
then and the garage has been redone.
- Combining my Master Gardener work with my Waterworks
Theater Board duties, I started to work on a
landscape project for the
Waterworks Players Community Theater. This project still needs
lots of work. Are you interested in a volunteering opportunity?
