The Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener Association offers free help to area homeowners through our virtual Help Lines, called Greenlines, and in-person Help Desks. Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Volunteers in each of our five counties are available to answer gardening-related questions.
For over 20 years, NSVMGA volunteers have helped citizens with plant and gardening questions. Homeowners are encouraged to contact their county volunteers by phone, email, or in person to get help identifying plants and diagnosing plant diseases and/or pests. Master Gardener volunteers also can share the latest research-based care advice for lawns, trees, shrubs, and vegetables, as well as promote safe use of pesticides and fertilizers to help protect water quality and the environment.
