Master Gardeners’

Fund Drive At 70%

Goal: To Redevelop Cooperstown

Parking Lot As Horticulture Hub

This is the garden center the Cooperative Extension’s Master Gardeners’ program is proposing at 123 Lake St., Cooperstown.

COOPERSTOWN – The Grow With Cornell Cooperative Extension fund drive is more than 70 percent toward its $200,000 goal so its Master Gardener program can convert its parking lot at 123 Lake St. into a center of teaching and education.

“Our success demonstrates the investment in planning conducted by Master Gardener Volunteers and staff, and the value the gardens will bring for residents living throughout the county,” said Don Smyers, executive director of Otsego and Schoharie county extension programs.

 The capital campaign was launched in November, and Smyers said the response “is especially rewarding in light of the December holidays and the COVID pandemic.”
