MONROE - The Green County Master Gardeners will be holding their monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Feb. 25 at the Green County Justice Center in the multipurpose rooms. The meeting is open to the public.

This month's meeting will feature Sandy Spotts and Amy Lewis speaking on "Greenhouse Growing and Preparation." Spotts and Lewis will talk about the history of their greenhouse operations at The Potting Shed and provide a yearly schedule for being a greenhouse grower and producer. They also will discuss upcoming class opportunities for gardening enthusiasts.

The Green County Wisconsin Master Gardeners Association was formed in 2004 to provide Master Gardeners with opportunities for professional development and community service. This past year, members of the association volunteered 185 hours of community education and 1,856 hours in community service projects in Green County. Master Gardener volunteers also assist the University of Wisconsin-Extension office in responding to horticulture questions and offer information through a column published in local newspapers.

The Green County Master Gardeners Association meets on the fourth Thursday of the month from February through October. Association officers for 2016 will include Mary Jackson, president; Marilyn Sandin-Ross, vice president; Kristi Leonard, secretary; and Lynn Lokken, treasurer.

Anyone interested in horticulture and gardening is welcome to join the association; members do not have to be Master Gardeners. For more information on the UW-Extension Master Gardener program contact Mark Mayer, agriculture agent, at 608-328-9440.
