    The Fayette County Master Gardener Volunteers (FCMGVs) and the Carnegie Public Library teamed up to bring together youth, aged 3 to 8, to learn about plants and gardening. This year’s theme is Discover, Create, Record.

    The program had four sessions. The first session was to plant the garden. We discovered and created the garden. We took pictures of the garden to watch its progress.

    MGV volunteers began their Holiday Season teaching 16 Wagnalls Memorial Library Home Schoolers how to look around their yards to create great holiday arrangements. The Master Gardener Volunteers found lots of needled trees and shrubs to use for a great little holiday “flower-less” arrangement!
