It’s #NationalVolunteerWeek and we’re celebrating our Master Gardener Volunteers. These men and women serve their communities wholeheartedly, everyday. Many have even found ways to continue to serve remotely throughout this difficult season. Let’s take a look at their 2019 accomplishments.
Today, we recognize the Master Gardener Volunteers as a whole. Our annual report highlights the enormous impact these men and women make in our communities. Each volunteer’s service is inspiring, but together, our volunteers are changing the way Florida grows its food, beautifies the landscape, and preserves its natural resources.
Volunteer Month recognizes and promotes the spirit of service, and raises awareness about how volunteering changes lives and strengthens communities. Read more
