PMG Association cancels all in-person programming until further notice.
The Piedmont Master Gardeners Association has made the decision to cancel all in-person programming until further notice, consistent with the Governor’s executive order and policies adopted by Virginia Tech and Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE). We regret any inconvenience for those we serve, but we must prioritize public health and safety in this rapidly evolving situation. Continue to check our website for updates regarding re-opening our local extension office as well as resuming in-person programming. Please keep in mind that when we do begin interacting with the public again, we will be operating under certain safety guidelines to help protect our office staff, our volunteers, and the public. Our office is always available by phone at 434-872-4580 from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday and a VCE staff member will help direct your inquiries to the correct contact.

CANCELLED 2020 Through the Garden Gate Series #3: Garden at Cargil Lane
July 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The 19th annual series of “Through the Garden Gate” presents a series of opportunities to visit local gardens. Come visit The Garden at Cargil Lane, 718 Cargil Lane, Charlottesville, Virginia 22901 hosted by the Piedmont Master Gardeners. Built in 1938, the original house had extensive gardens, with a greenhouse, that over time were abandoned and became overrun by wild grape and wisteria. Ten years ago, the owners began to clear the overgrowth then design and plant the one-acre property. It borders a pond and stream, so wildlife is plentiful. A deer fence installed in 2019 has made a significant difference in planting options and protects a water garden; outside the fence, the garden features deer-resistant plants. Admission is $5 and can be paid at the garden.
