Lyndol Anderson of Walthourville and Mary-Ann McIntosh of Townsend have been honored as “lifetime Master Gardeners” during the Liberty County Alumni Master Gardener Association meeting.
According to Bell, “Ms. Anderson has served as a Master Gardener for over 11 years and Ms. McIntosh has served for over 10 years.”
Both have provided hundreds of hours of personal time working community service projects and assisting homeowners. The lifetime status is awarded to Master Gardeners who volunteer for 10 consecutive years with a minimum of 25 hours per year.
The Master Gardener program in Georgia is a volunteer training program designed to help extension agents transfer research-based information about gardening and related subjects to the public by training home gardeners.
Through this program, volunteers benefit from the classes and ongoing training and the opportunity to share knowledge with others; the agents and community benefit from the service.
For more information about the Master Gardener program, call the Liberty County Cooperative Extension Service at 876-2133.
