Master Gardeners fund college scholarships

By Diane Palmer

Aiken County Master Gardeners are raising money for college scholarships while they solve homeowners’ lawn and garden problems. For a $50 donation, a five-person team of certified Master Gardeners will make a house-call and provide written recommendations for gardening solutions.

Called “Rent-A-Master Gardener,” all consulting fees fund scholarships for needy students. The Master Gardeners program, administered by Clemson Extension, provides intensive training in home horticulture in exchange for volunteer service to communities.
