Habitat for Humanity
Recent landscaping project for new Habitat home in Clayton, GA (Rabun County). This was a joint effort between Habitat volunteers (building wall and flower beds) and Headwaters Master Gardeners designing and installing plants. A special opportunity to get the job done between organizations!
The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. This mission is accomplished, through hands on learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, foods and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship.
White County Farmers Market
Headwater Master Gardeners make a portion of the money they raise helping to administer the White County Farmers Market during the summer months, by plant sales during the summer and sometimes early fall months (look for the dates on this web site), participating in yard sales when we are invited, and sometimes from donations and various small events as they come up.
We use this money to give scholarships to high school seniors who are planning on majoring in college in some horticultural field. We also, when requested, as a new Habitat for Humanity house is built, give matching funds for plants, flowers and shrubs and do the planting of these items. About twice a year, we do a "Lunch and Learn" at various locations for the public on various horticultural topics. Again, look here for time and locations. Tom Lebuis, Treasurer
