It is with great sadness to inform you of the death of one of our colleagues.  Roy Lewis passed away on April 7 from a massive heart attack.  Roy was a major contributor to the Johnston County Master Gardener Volunteer Program and, in addition, served as NCEMGVA delegate and vice-president.  He is well known in the Raleigh area for his Saturday morning gardening radio show. A link to his obituary will be posted when it becomes available. Please keep Roy's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.

I'm excited to share with you the line up for the 2020 Plants, Pests and Pathogens season! Our 2020 season will continue the extended schedule that was established in 2019, with webinars held the 4th Tuesday of every month, Feb - Oct. from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.

  • The March, May, July and Sept webinars will feature guest speakers addressing topics that were selected based on suggestions shared in the 2019 Plants, Pests and Pathogens evaluation survey, along with BOLOs (Be On the LookOut) updates from Matt and Mike. 
  • New this Season - Each webinar will include a plant focus that will feature a "Weed of the Month" and a "Plant of the Month". Plant of the month selections will highlight woody plants and perennials for NC landscapes that benefit birds and pollinators!
