Gardening is among our nation’s most popular pastimes, yielding fresh fruits and vegetables for the dinner table, a cleaner environment and aesthetically pleasing landscapes. North Carolina Cooperative Extension’s gardening portal helps gardeners learn more about new plants, native plants and environmental stewardship. Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are instrumental in these efforts, sharing their knowledge of plant selection, cultural practices and pest management with fellow gardeners, school students and others.
