    Fayette County MGVs are researching, scripting and recording a cell phone tour highlighting the trees of the county’s historic Washington Cemetery. Listed on the National Register of Historical Sites, the cemetery has undergone thousands of dollars in renovations of many of its structures including the Fiske Fountain, the Judy Chapel and a statue of a Civil War soldier.  In addition, the 60-acre cemetery contains an impressive collection of trees, including Bald Cypress, Ohio Buckeye, Gingko, Tri-color Beech, Kentucky Coffee and Swamp White Oak.

    Canning jars.  They’re found all over Pinterest boards as soap dispensers, drinking glasses, home décor and even chandeliers!

    In 2014, Medina Co. Master Gardener Volunteers (MGVs) decided to capitalize on this canning jar craze by hosting a “Harvest in a Jar” event. The event started as a program to educate citizens on the proper canning techniques and share ideas to take advantage of the fall’s excess harvest. Through discussion, the program expanded to cover canning, seed saving and decorating with backyard flora.
