She has a master’s degree in horticulture and was a horticulture instructor with tenure. Melinda has written over 20 gardening books and some will be available at this event for purchase.

This event will include time for you to bring your garden questions to Melinda Myers for answers. Garden centers will be attending with booths showing their wares, giving you time to chat with local businesses in the area. Master Gardener Volunteers will be on hand to share information on what it means to be a volunteer with the Master Gardener program. They will also share how to get involved in your community, how to become a volunteer with the program, how to become a member of the local Master Gardener Association, and help sign you up for the upcoming class sessions.
Door prize drawings and refreshments will be part of the evening fun. There is no charge to attend and reservations are not required. Mark your calendars and tell your friends! Call Joni at 608-369-0625 or Scott at 541-921-5806 with questions.
