    • Statewide MGV awards: If you need some inspiration, take a moment and read what these 44 OSU Extension Master Gardener volunteers accomplished this past year, despite the COVID pandemic. Congratulations to all of the Master Gardeners of the Year, and the Behind the Scenes award winners!
    • Saturday: Master Gardener BioBlitz: Join us on our iNaturalist project page to capture the insects, birds, wild plants, and other wild organisms in your garden or a nearby garden space. Your efforts will help to document garden biodiversity in Oregon! Learn more.
    • Linn County Fair: We had a great presence at the Fair this year with 319 visitors. Most were very interested in the garden, not just using it for a “walk through”.  Thank you so much for all of you who prepared the garden and were in the garden to meet and greet all of the visitors. –Janice Gregg
