Limestone County Master Gardeners

Master Gardeners are Extension-trained volunteer educators aiming to increase the availability of home horticulture information through qualified volunteers and to extend the land grant mission across Alabama.


Each year, Limestone County members perform more than 7,500 hours of volunteer service that benefit the community. Alabama Master Gardeners donated 186,000 volunteer hours last year, while also taking 25,000 continuing education hours


Since our inaugural class in 1992, more than 300 people have received Master Gardener training in Limestone County and over 6,000 in Alabama. Many remain active supporting our community projects and continuing to learn more about gardening in North Alabama.


Last year Alabama Master Gardeners contributed 16.7 TONS of food to local shelters/organizations. Limestone provided 2,500 pounds of produce to local charities. We maintain/support various vegetable gardens throughout the county.
