Gardeners in our Community 

In addition to maintaining the arboretum at Bluebird Gap Farm, the Hampton Master Gardeners organize a variety of activities designed to engage members of our community, to answer their questions, and to get them excited about their own yards and gardens. 

Some of the activities we facilitate include:

Monthly Crafts with residents of Northhampton Convalescent Center

Monthly Children's Crafts at Bluebird Gap Farm

Master Gardeners Help Desk

Healthy Lawns

The Langley Village Community Garden

Bee City USA

Plant A Row Program

There are over 84 million households with a yard or garden in the U.S. If every gardener plants one extra row of vegetables and donates their surplus to local food agencies and soup kitchens, a significant impact can be made on reducing hunger.

You can make a difference. Simply add a row (or a few) to your garden bed this season, and commit those crops to feeding others in our community. Its that easy.

Northhampton Convalescent Center

Crafts with residents on 4th Thursdays

On the 4th Thursday of the month you can find a dedicated group of volunteers assisting  with craft and garden related projects. For about 5 years, Barbara K and Suzzane J have spearheaded an outreach project with residents at the Northhampton Convalescent Center. Interacting with participants, encouraging them as they work, offering assistance as needed, are a few of Barbara's favorite things about this project. In the past the MG volunteers centered crafts around live plants and flower arragements, but upon realizing the limitations of some of the residents, they now focus on recreating nature using low cost and upcycled materials. In 2022, MG volunteers planned, purchased plants for, and assisted in replanting a patio garden behind the dining room where crafts are done. 


If you are interested in assisting or have craft ideas to share, contact Barbara or Suzzane and look out for their monthly email reminder.
