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 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.
