Arkansas Yard & Garden Resources

There's an irresistible link between people and the soil beneath our feet.  Beyond the necessity of growing food, there is knowledge and a sense of accomplishment that comes from cultivating the earth.  The Cooperative Extension Service, part of the University of Arkansas System's Division of Agriculture, nurtures this relationship in many ways including school gardens, the Master Gardener program and the annual Arkansas Flower & Garden Show.
