Current and Upcoming Events

All face-to-face ACES meetings have been cancelled/postponed until further notice.  Unfortunately, this means Master Gardener meetings, workshops, etc., too. Hopefully, we can get back together soon. Please contact Bethany O'Rear with any questions.

All of the volunteer efforts (making masks, running errands, dropping food, etc.) can count as MG hours during this unusual time.
