Master Gardeners Always Grow “Good Works”

The Lackawanna County Commissioners recognized the “Good Works” of the Penn State Master Gardeners who captured second place in the Search of Excellence Award’s Community Division for their efforts at the North Pocono Library’s community garden. The award program was sponsored by the International Master Gardener Conference. Since the garden was instituted in 2015, it has donated over 3,000 pounds of fresh produce to the North Pocono food pantry and also served as a valuable youth and adult educational resource.
