With featured speakers including Rick Darke, Doug Tallamy, Andrea Wulf, and more, no other gardening program brings together top quality speakers and historic plantation settings as well as the Southern Garden Symposium. Known as much for its engaging social events and historic venues as for its outstanding gardening lectures and workshops, the Southern Garden Symposium – now in its 30th year – has become an annual tradition for garden enthusiasts from across the South. Often described as a town “two miles long and two yards wide,” the quaint community offers Southern hospitality, fantastic shopping, and breathtaking scenery. Symposium events are held at several historic and picturesque locations, both public and private, including The Oaks Plantation, Hillcroft, Afton Villa Gardens, Rosedown State Historic Site, Grace Episcopal Church, and more.

Record your Educational and Volunteer hours here
Civic & Community Activities is where you record plant sales, Le Tour, helping with a field day for community gardens. Think of it as ‘Events’. Remember to make a ‘guesstimate’ of how many folks are at the event and enter it as Total Number of People Reached. Extension Activities are what you do here at the office that makes our home base and our programs run smoothly: working in the gardens, answering the phone, prepping or setting up for the sales and events.

The garden is beautiful, but the work at the Red River Research Station is far from over. Mark Wilson has sent out a call for Master Gardeners to continue work at the Northwest Louisiana Master Gardeners Super Plant Research Garden. Watch your email for more information for times and days. This service will count toward your volunteer hours! BYW..This garden looks beautiful! But the weeds never stop growing.
Gwen Phelps, Chairman
Did you forget? Every Master Gardener is required to man to phones at the Carriage House:
This is a requirement clearly stated and understood by all Master Gardeners in good standing (i.e.paying dues, attending meetings, participating in Master Gardener projects). Any master gardener who needs hours or who wants a day to chat up other gardeners can do so by serving phone duty in the MG Office.
New! The calendar is now online on this very page! You can see it or you can click a different link and add your choice of time and day to work. You must have the email and password to sign up so get your instructions at a meeting or at the carriage house
