This survey will help Tennessee Extension determine if our lawn, garden, and landscape information is reaching the needs of residents across Tennessee through garden shows, fairs, presentations, and events. When you take 3-5 minutes to answer these few, brief questions, we will be able to better educate and assist residents through consumer horticultural education now and in the future. This survey is anonymous, and you are free to skip questions or quit the survey at any time. We very much appreciate  your time and thanks in advance for your feedback!
