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.
