Ellicottville, NEW YORK (May 30, 2023) -- Cornell Cooperative Extension of Cattaraugus County’s Master Gardener Program is excited to announce their NEW Master Gardener Help Desk will open Wednesday, June 7th for the 2023 gardening season!

Cattaraugus County Master Gardeners are ready to help with your gardening questions, plant or animal identification or other gardening issues. Bring your questions to the Help Line by telephone, e-mail or walk in on Wednesdays 1:30pm-3:30pm, starting June 7th and continuing every Wednesday during the growing season. Our garden experts will review your request and set you in the right direction. Also, as an extra bonus if you bring in a soil sample our garden team will test for pH! pH is important for the adsorption of nutrients in your soil. Master Gardener services are free.
