County 76

What is County 76?

County 76 is the statewide advisory group for the Arkansas Master Gardener program.  It is open to all active Master Gardeners in Arkansas.   County 76 members help set policy, and provide guidance to county programs.  Programs offered statewide will be County 76 "projects."

 The structure of the group is based on our county programs, and since there are 75 counties in Arkansas, this group is now the "76' county.  The "County Agent" is  the State MG Coordinator (Janet Carson)

and the officers will be elected from the membership of County 76. The projects will focus on organizational, leadership, and general management issues. County 76 members will decide which projects will be created, and each member will decide on which project he/she wants to work.

Who can join County 76?

County 76 is open to all Master Gardeners who have completed the training and are in good standing in their local county programs.  In addition to their county commitment, each County 76 member must accrue 10 additional hours on County 76 sanctioned projects. Membership term is unlimited for those who recertify both in their local county and at the state level.  County Agents who have an active Master Gardener program in their county may also participate.
