Calling All Gardeners
By, Lisa Hagerty, EMG and Editor for The Real Dirt
The Real Dirt represents a community of Master Gardeners and we need help from our community for the March issue. While we have always focused on the four main categories that matter to us most: Nourish, Beautify, Steward and Serve, we recently added a category for IPM. We strive to have stories that fall into each of these categories with every issue, but we don’t always reach our goal.
Did you know you can earn volunteer hours to write for The Real Dirt? You can write about the MGANM monthly meeting you attended… write about the tree or shrub or bulbs you planted…write about the trouble you are having with one of your indoor plants and the steps you took to address it. Did you go to the library, or search online to see what others are saying? Where did you get your information? Share what you find with us, but we do like it to be science-based. You can write about anything and everything that is plant, yard or garden related, as long as it’s relevant to the current time of year.
Remember, you don’t need to be the best writer to share a story or some insight into a topic that other Master Gardeners might benefit from. Just do your best. If it needs a little sprucing up, we will take care of it!
