Ashe County Master Gardeners: NC State Extension Master Gardener volunteers provide unbiased, research-based information on gardens, lawns and landscapes. The Extension Master Gardener sm program began at Washington State University in 1972 in response to a high demand for gardening advice. In 1977 NC State volunteers staffed a garden hotline in New Hanover County. The next year Wake County trained their first Extension Master Gardener sm volunteers and three years later, there were 110 Extension Master Gardener Volunteers in five counties.
