A Note from Master Gardener Josephine Swanson

Hello Fellow Gardeners,

Cornell Cooperative Extension Seneca County Master Gardeners are pleased to share some online materials, information on distance learning online courses  and general information websites. 

At this time, we are not able to share free seeds because of necessary closure of public spaces.  But we all can Garden On ! and enjoy the outdoors while practicing social distancing.

Stay Well and Be Safe.
