Master Gardeners of Becker County: 2010 Accomplishments





Becker County Master Gardeners made several grand entrances onto the area TV stage late summer 2010 with half of our small band debuting--and a few more gathering up their courage for a 2011 debut.         

          Topic segments are just 5 minutes, filmed at the master gardener's choice of venue and also their choice of topic.  A diverse and skilled troop, topics are as varied as the gardeners themselves.  Raising bees, herbs, labeling, pruning, garden layout, raising vegetables, caring for onions, caring for dahlias, and combating ants are topics thus far.

          Budding stars so far are Linda Perrine, Cindy Hendrickson, Alice Wenzel, Heather Ettlinger, Marietta Keenan, D.Mae Ceryes, Genelle Bentley, MaCrae Putnum, Winnefred Gillespie, Mary Wichmann, Sally Hausken.
