The Alpine Master Gardener Association of Otsego County welcomes you to our website! Our association of Master Gardener Volunteers is committed to educating the public in gardening practices through volunteering and community involvement.
Currently, we have 54 paid members in our association. In 2012 alone, our members accumulated over 1,461 educational hours and contributed over 3,871 volunteer hours throughout our communities.
Here's what you can expect at our meetings: All sorts of gardening tidbits, area events, tips and tricks, speakers, volunteer opportunities, a good sprinkling of laughter, fun, surprises, door-prizes, refreshments, and great gardener-to-gardener conversation and camaraderie. You'll find members who tend perennial gardens, some who grow vegetables, grapes for wine, roses, houseplants, lilies, or Hostas for deer. Others like flower arranging, wildflowers, and water gardens. We have members who compost, grow plants from seed, concoct anti-bug potions, garden organically, and use irrigation and greenhouses.
Some of us are long-time gardeners, some "do just a little" and some are "just getting started". All of us are still learning, and sharing what we've discovered about what's new, what works, and what makes our gardening experiences even richer.
