The Putnam County Master Gardener Organization is a group of individuals with a passion for gardening, a thirst for knowledge, and a desire to educate. Master Gardeners are university-trained volunteers who assist UT Extension Offices in providing home horticulture and environmental stewardship information to their home counties. Master Gardeners are recognized by and represent UT Extension as garden experts who serve the community.
The Putnam County Master Gardeners organization is comprised of over 60 members from the Upper Cumberland area and is part of the University of Tennessee Master Gardener Program which boasts over 2,000 members statewide. We are dedicated to helping the community in which we live through education and community beautification projects.
