Cobb Master Gardeners "Best of Atlanta"

The Through the Garden Gate 2014 garden tour of Cobb Extension's Master Gardeners has been chosen as a "Best of Atlanta" winner for 2014 by Atlanta Magazine. The recognition of the spectacular work of this service-oriented group of gardeners is well-deserved!

The annual garden tour and associated plant sale is the primary fundraising activity for the Master Gardener Volunteers of Cobb County (MGVOCC). The funds are used to support Master Gardener projects throughout the county, including school gardens, gardens that produce food for donation to local pantries, community gardens, historic gardens, and demonstration gardens.

The tour is of yards and gardens of our Master Gardeners, and they demonstrate what is possible in many kinds of yards. Docents (Master Gardeners!) are on site at the tour gardens to answer yard and garden questions.

The tour is held each year on the Saturday of Mother's Day weekend. For 2015, that date will be May 9. For additional information about the tour, please see the Garden Tour page of the MGVOCC.
