Remember how much we like science-based gardening information? Not to mention Master Gardener programs? Well, Master Gardener Magazine is the publication that puts all that together and it may be shut down due to budget cutbacks (by the Washington State government, which pays for it). So editor Linda Chalker-Scott asks GardenRant readers to help…somehow.
- You could show your support by joining the "Friends of Master Gardener Magazine" Facebook group, and then in a comment, give us your most savvy advice about how to USE the group help save the mag.
- If you're unfamiliar with the publication, you could go to their website and if you find the information useful, send Linda an email saying so! (lindacsATwsu.edu))
- And if you have any ideas about finding advertisers, also let Linda know in an email. So far, most of the advertisers are local to Yakima, but the mag has content that's helpful beyond Western Washington. I've found the articles helpful to gardening here in Maryland, so it's definitely not just regional.
