MARSHALL  NATIVE  GARDENS  
 
  MARSHALL  NATIVE  GARDENS  INITIATIVE  ( M.N.G.I. )
 
 
     Marshall  Native  Gardens    is located on the 4.2 acre grounds  of  the  Madison County Public Library in Marshall, NC.  It is a free garden  envisioned, designed, constructed, and maintained by Marshall Native Gardens Initiative - M.N.G.I. -- in cooperation with the Library Director & Madison County. 
 
     M.N.G.I. is a very diverse all volunteer group with no paid staff.  So, we love and rely on volunteers of all backgrounds and skill levels.  All are welcome who want to learn about native plants,  sustainable gardening, and/or  mountain agriculture.

     Nov. & Dec. Garden     
        Work Activities

     MNGI is renovating our Butterfly Garden with the help of French Broad Academy School for Girls and the French Broad Academy School for Boys.  They are will be sending crews of 14 to our Gardens every Thursday until Dec. 13th (9:30am until 1:30pm with a pizza party for all at noon).  These are service days for the students and our usual garden volunteers, an opportunity to learn more about the gardens, and a chance for MNGI to get some garden projects done.  Reems Creek Nursery and Wildbud Natives Nursery are also helping with these garden renovations by donating native perennials and expertise.
 
    Project Challenge will also be having a number of service days in the Gardens - usually on Tuesdays.  So, if you have some time on a Tuesdays in November and want to join in,  please call Ed at 333-3883 for more details.

   No monthly workday or meetings are scheduled in November or December.
Instead,  join us for the Tuesday  &/or Thursday service day/s to get involved. 

We hope to see you in the Gardens!
