The University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service provides a broad range of information for homeowners, home gardeners, and Master Gardeners. The Crawford County Extension Office has loads of horticulture information, can answer questions, and help solve home & garden problems. Some of the FREE services that we provide in the area of horticulture include soil testing, insect and pest identification, plant and weed identification, and research-based horticulture advice.  Additionally, the River Valley Master Gardener program is designed to increase the availability of horticultural information and improve quality of life with horticultural projects.   Trained volunteers, know as Master Gardeners, accomplish these educational goals. Program participants receive 40 hours of intensive horticultural training and are expected to give back 40 hours of community service within a year after finishing the training.  If you are interested in becoming a River  Valley Master Gardener, contact the Crawford or Sebastian County Extension Office.
