|MARJORIE STANSEL - 2012 Master Gardener Volunteer Of The Year|
|Congratulations to Marjorie Stansel, the Douglas County Master
Gardener Association's '2012 Master Gardener of the Year'! Marjorie
completed her master gardener training in 2009. She served as President
of Douglas County
Master Gardeners in 2010 and 2011, and as Treasurer in 2012. Concurrent
with her 2010, 2011 and 2012 DCMGA positions, she has served as District Director, Chair of Finance and VP-Elect for the state organization, the Georgia Master Gardeners' Association. Marjorie is currently the President-Elect of the state association.
Marjorie spearheads projects at the 19-acre Nature Trail adjacent to the Douglas County Courthouse. She serves as the co-lead at the Master Gardener Plant A Row vegetable garden; in 2012, this garden donated to several local non-profits approximately 4,000 pounds of fresh produce.
Marjorie has served on the Hospitality Committee for three years, helping to assure our meeting place is stocked and set up prior to each meeting.
Marjorie worked tirelessly during the Hydrangea Festival Flower Show and she has also co-chaired the organization's annual plant sale for three years.
She was a member of the Cookbook Committee, helping put together the cookbook "Garden Treasures". Marjorie also completed the training necessary to become a Master Naturalist.
Whenever a volunteer is needed, Marjorie is there, throwing her energy and enthusiasm into the project.
Certainly, Marjorie has earned and deserves the designation as Master Gardener of the Year for the Douglas County Master Gardener Association.
