Master Gardeners:  Beautifying the County

The Master Gardener volunteer program provides an opportunity for individuals interested in gardening to learn and serve their communities. 

For 22 years, the Saline County Master Gardeners have cared for the flower beds in front of the Gann Museum. The museum is an architectural landmark being the only known building in existence that is constructed out of bauxite. Built in 1893 as the office of Dr. Jewell Gann Sr., the museum is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Master Gardeners feel a connection to Saline County’s past through this long tenured project to beautify the grounds in front of the building.

In addition to beautification projects, the Saline County Master Gardeners sponsor a wide range of educational programs, seminars, plant sales, and other activities.  For more information contact Ron Matlock
