JAMESTOWN - The Master Gardener Program of Chautauqua County will be holding its third annual Plant Sale and Expo on Saturday, May 11 in the big barn at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Frank Bratt Ag Center, 3542 Turner Rd., Jamestown.

The sale will begin promptly at 9 a.m., with no early sales, and end at noon. Cash or check only.

"We will have tried and true perennials, annuals, herbs and shrubs from the Master Gardeners' gardens, and our MG volunteers will be available to answer questions," Director of the MG Program Betsy Burgeson said.

In addition to the plants, there will be handcrafted Mother's Day gardening gifts and rain barrels available for sale.

"Kids enjoy gardening, too, so bring the whole family," Burgeson said. "It's the perfect time to get excited about the garden season and a great way to help us raise funds to keep our program going strong."

The Master Gardener program is a volunteer educational outreach program administered through Cornell Cooperative Extension. The goal of the program is to train enthusiastic volunteers who, in turn, educate and provide research-based information to the community on a wide variety of horticultural topics. The mission of Cornell Cooperative Extension is to enable people to improve their lives and communities through partnerships that put experience and research knowledge to work. Master Gardener Volunteers are a key link in helping CCE accomplish this mission.
