Welcome to the website for the Master Gardner Association of the Central Rappahannock Area (MGACRA)! We are a volunteer group of Master Gardeners that support the Virginia Cooperative Extension in offering horticultural-related education and assistance to the people within the counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania, and Stafford and the City of Fredericksburg.
The holidays are coming, which means it is time for MGACRA’s biggest fundraiser — our boxwood wreathmaking workshops.
We need volunteers for gathering the boxwood on Friday, November 15th, and for helping with the workshops on Monday, November 18th; Saturday, November 23rd; Friday, December 6th; and Monday, December 9th. Click here for details on volunteering.

Hardiness Zone Map
The USDA has released a new hardiness zone map that more accurately reflects lowest temperatures. The new map updates the 1990 version and is based on data across 30 years and considers changes in elevation, proximity to large bodies of water and extremes of terrain. An interactive, online version of the new map can be found here: http://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/PHZMWeb/
