A message from our President:

Active involvement in Jefferson County Master Gardeners Association makes it easy to get excited about gardens, gardening and community service. The year 2019 has been a continuation of our commitment to exceptional community service through Master Gardeners. Our Board of Directors and Committees, in coordination with ACES and BBG, serve tirelessly to make great things happen. Accomplishments in 2019 include: the 2019 MG Intern Class serving its way toward the certification ceremony in November; grants issued to qualifying community service organizations for the betterment of their communities; our ongoing involvement in Harvest for Health, The Lovelady Center and Children’s Fresh Air Farm adds joy to our journey. And more is on the horizon as we enter the months of August and September.

Presently, we are seeking individuals who are interested in serving on the Nominating Committee, which will be selected at our regular monthly meeting on September 10, 2019. The Nominating Committee will work during September to present a slate of Officers at the October meeting. The Nominating Committee meets with the Past President to fill the offices of the Board, as well as to populate the committees that work with the Board. It is important that this committee draws from our general membership, so that those nominated to serve as Officers reflect the direction and goals of our organization. Please contact Past President Gail Pless via email, if you are interested.

Lastly, as September comes and goes year after year, I often recall Andy Williams’ song: Try to Remember (the Days of September). And September 17, 2019 will not soon be forgotten if you accept this invitation to our Cocktail Party at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. So come, and invite members of your MG Class to come, too — it’s a reunion, and it’s FREE!
