About the Show:
Today’s episode is all about The University of Arkansas Extension Agriculture and Horticulture Program. Colin Massey is our guest and is the Washington County Agriculture and Horticulture Agent. Colin shared some great stories and walked us through all that he does to promote native horticulture in Arkansas. He gives us a glimpse into all of the services offered in his department, and the cool thing is that most of them are free. We also talked about the Master Gardener program and how his office supports its local efforts.
Colin shared many resources – PDFs and Videos – with us, and we wanted to share them with our listeners.
