Rockbridge Master Gardeners

The Rockbridge Area Master Gardeners serve as an educational outreach on scientific horticultural topics to citizens of the Rockbridge area. We accomplish this through gardening hot lines, plant clinics, education in public schools, gardening programs and maintaining demonstration gardens.

We are an adjunct to the local Cooperative Extension Agent and serve under the auspices of the Virginia Cooperative Extension.

Seed Swap: It is not too late to submit seeds to be "processed" for our annual seed swap to be held January 30th in conjunction with our Pot Luck Dinner.  We have sorted, packaged and researched only a couple dozen species thus far including annuals, perennials, natives, herbs and vegetables.  We would be happy to accept your seeds "in the raw" as long as they are identified.  If you have left-over seeds in original commercial packets that are still viable, we will include them as well.  Just drop them off at the Extension Office and shoot Karen Lyons an email ( to let her know they are there.
