Master Gardeners are members of the Grundy County community who take an active interest in growing flowers, vegetables, fruits, shrubs, trees and lawns. "What really sets them apart from other home gardeners is their commitment to learning and sharing what they learn with others," said Grundy County Extension & Outreach Administrator Shari Sell-Bakker.
