Linda Blue, NC Cooperative Extension Agent with Buncombe County recently retired. Staff wishes her all the best in her well deserved retirement, but will certainly miss her presence, humor, and vast knowledge of Urban Horticulture.
Linda joined the Buncombe County Extension Staff in 1993 after beginning her Extension career in Rowan County as the
Commercial Horticulture agent there. In her years in Buncombe County she has built the Master Gardener program into one of the top programs of its type in North Carolina.
Her contributions in Buncombe County will be appreciated by her many clients, coworkers, and friends for many years to come. Happy gardening, Linda.
