Starting in 2017, with Lowes providing and constructing the fence, Henderson County Extension Master Gardener Association providing the plants, local youth planting and learning as Gardeners taught and encouraged their efforts. Master Gardeners use their plant sales to provide scholarships to the local FFA Chapter. The 2020 coronavirus interrupted planting season for the Master Gardener fundraiser.
An unexpected donation allowed HCCO to partner with the Master Gardeners replacing needed funding for the scholarships. This year Master Gardeners have been instrumental in the success of the garden. Planting, tilling, weeding, watering, even picking the fruit and vegetables has fallen to the Master Gardeners Association. We are blessed to have this partnership to provide fresh produce for our clients. Clients are given garden baskets and may visit Gods Garden anytime they are in need of fresh veggies.
