The Northern Neck Master Gardener Help Desk is now open! Master Gardeners are Virginia Cooperative Extension volunteers trained by local Extension Agents and Specialists in home gardening. They work with the public at the Virginia Cooperative Extension Office in Westmoreland County on Mondays from 9 am – 12 pm, April - October, to answer home landscape questions, diagnose plant diseases and identify garden pests. County residents can call 493-8924, walk-in during office hours or email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
