This year, 2024, marks the 45th birthday of the Georgia Master Gardener Extension Volunteer Program, and we’re taking time to celebrate. We take birthdays pretty seriously around here!

In June, we have a very special celebration that spotlights MGEV demonstration gardens! During the entire month of June, we are hosting Open Garden Days. Twelve counties have volunteered to open their demonstration gardens to the public and offer special events, like guided tours, speakers, and workshops. While many MGEV demonstration gardens are already listed on our Visit A Garden webpage, we have a digital comprehensive garden guide that outlines all the details of the many special events at gardens around the state in June. This guide can be downloaded and printed. Visitors are encouraged to check out as many of the gardens as possible!

Each time you visit a garden, complete the evaluation survey to be entered in a drawing for prizes. Be sure to include your name and email address at the end of the survey so that we can contact you if you win. One prize drawing entry for each garden visited and survey completed. There will also be a top prize awarded to the individual who visits the most gardens. To enter this giveaway, take a photo of your completed Open Garden Days passport and email it along with your name and phone number to Unique garden stamps will be verified, and the individual who has visited the greatest number of gardens will receive a prize. In the event that there is a tie for the number of gardens visited, winner will be determined by a random drawing. Winners will be drawn on July 2. All completed survey entries and emailed passports received by 11:59 PM ET on July 1, 2024 will be eligible for a chance to win a prize!
