The Zinnie Project

The Zinnie Project is a zinnia garden headed Jan & Whit Whitaker and Carol Benson. The Zinni Project was conceived by Jan & Whit in 2015 and first planted in 2016. The project grows and distributes fresh-cut zinnias to area memory care facilities and nursing homes.

Update: Work Day at Charlie Daniels Park

Hey everyone,

We got rain.  Sometimes Mother Nature gives you what you want when you want it and they some extra.  We got a lot extra.  The little garden is a mess.  If it didn’t have a fence around it she would be in Old Hickory Lake today.  But, if it rains again before in the morning we will have to wait on working. But, if it doesn’t rain, wear your worst clothes and we will fix her to her rightful glory.  Again, thanks to the gardeners who brought veggies, you are the greatest.

Mohammed Ali thought he was the greatest! WRONG you all are.

WCMG Email Problem / Request

Wilson County Master Gardeners,

As of Friday morning, 8 July 2016 hour normal means of communication, our email account, has developed a problem. Essentially, two thirds of our members are not receiving email sent from our account, wilsoncountymg@gmail.com

We are working on a solution, but it could take time. In the meantime, please keep an eye on our website for important communications. In addition, workdays and schedules for the various projects, and other volunteer opportunities, will be posted on the new Calendar, found here:  https://wilsoncountymg.org/wcmg-calendar/

And here:  https://calendar.google.com/calendar/embed?src=ilg5gkri393tcvlevndi6eaomg%40group.calendar.google.com&ctz=America/Chicago

Finally, this problem only affects our ability to send multi-recipient email messages to the membership. We will continue to send and receive email messages using our account, but only on an individual basis. In other words, if you send an email to wilsoncountymg@gmail.com we will receive it and respond. We are just having difficulty reaching all of you at once.

Thank you for your patience while we resolve this problem.

Greg

Live-Action Meeting Photos from 5 July 2016

The Wilson County Master Gardener Association met Tuesday evening, 5 July 2016 in the Education Building at the James E Ward Agricultural Center in Lebanon. Our guest speaker was Margaret Cantrell from the Wilson County Beekeepers Association. Margaret is a third-generation beekeeper, and talked about what goes on inside the hive, the importance of honeybees and other pollinators to our food supply, and some of the problems bees and beekeepers are facing today.

Our dinner theme for the evening was  A Patriotic Picnic  and did we ever have a spread.
