The Wilson Botanical Gardens (WBG) were designed to showcase the diversity of plant material that can be used in the home landscape, and to educate and entertain visitors with youth and adult programs. It includes an extensive tree collection, turf grass demonstration plots, perennial beds, and an exhibit of native plants.

Master Gardener Classes start March 2-May 4 from 9am-noon each day. If you have ever said I want to become a Master Gardener, now is the time to apply. This is a multi-county training so travel will be required so holding 8 AM-1 PM each Wednesday is preferred. Travel will be provided by carpooling in the County Van. Approximate cost of the class is $125. If you are interested please fill in the application and email back to before Jan. 29. Many thanks and if I can be of any assistance please let me know.
