Got Garden Questions? Craven County Master Gardeners Have Answers!

The Craven County Extension Office and Master Gardener Volunteers have established a Help Desk on Thursday mornings at the Craven County Extension Office. Master Gardeners are available from 9am – noon to answer gardening questions, examine plant or disease samples, provide current, research-based advice from the County Extension Office, and provide relevant publications free of charge.

A wide array of resources are available on-site for researching horticultural questions, and unresolved questions can be passed along to senior Master Gardeners, Extension agents, or other specialists. Soil sample kits are also available, along with information on how to submit samples for free analysis.

The Help Desk is located at the Craven County Agricultural Building, 300 Industrial Drive, New Bern; phone 252-633-1477. Walk-in, phone in, or email your garden questions to the Extension Office.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
