2003 Highlights & 2004 Changes
by Lucy K. Bradley,
Extension Agent, Urban Horticulture
2003 was an exciting year for the Master Gardener
Journal, culminating in the newsletter being named first-place winner in the
National Association of County Agricultural Agents' Western Region, in the
division of Team Newsletter.
Candice Sherrill, editor since 2002, worked diligently to make certain that
Journal readers were treated to the very latest and best information concerning
plants and gardening, skillfully planning, researching, and editing every issue.
Talented Phoenix artist Donna Atwood not only gave the newsletter a wonderful
new design at the first of the year, but also did the layout for each issue
while finishing her coursework for a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts at ASU. Jo
Cook, Internet maven par excellence, took time out of her busy schedule to
convert each issue into HTML for uploading onto the MG Publications site.
Regretfully Candice and Donna are moving on to other projects, but we're looking
forward to building on their wonderful contribution and making even more
improvements in the coming year.
