Description

The Arkansas Master Gardener program maintains many public gardens in Pulaski County. The Old Mill and the restoration of the grounds at Park Hill Water Works in North Little Rock, and the formal gardens at the Old State House Museum and Curran Hall in Little Rock to name a few.

Master Gardeners also maintain the wildflower and butterfly areas at Pinnacle Mountain State Park, the Contemplation Garden in MacArthur Park, formal planters in the courtyards of the Arkansas Arts Center, and the heritage roses at Mount Holly Cemetery. They work in demonstration gardens at the state and county Cooperative Extension Service offices, the State Hospital, and the Markham Street entrance to War Memorial Park.

Master Gardeners grow world-renowned varieties of blackberries and blueberries at the Cammack – University of Arkansas System’s garden and tend the Governor's Mansion Vegetable Garden. They also use the State Hospital greenhouse to grow plants for many of the projects.
