The Sequatchie Valley Master Gardener News is a monthly newsletter, the purpose of which is to inform Master Gardeners in the Sequatchie Valley (Bledsoe and Sequatchie Counties) Tennessee, of events and activities, and to provide timely garden and horticulture information.  The newsletter, also, serves as a means to promote Extension activities in the two counties other than the Master Gardening program.  The audience is those that have completed the Master Gardening course. Copies are distributed electronically to seventy-six individuals. Extension field staff on field equipment prepares the newsletter. Team members, and occasionally Master Gardeners, submit articles and materials for publication.  Articles come from Extension news releases or are written by field staff or Master Gardeners.  Since Master Gardeners are volunteers and are often a first contact with a client regarding horticulture questions the newsletter has served as a means of providing timely information on current topics and issues.
