    The mission of the Delaware County Master Gardener Association is to provide environmentally sound, research-based, horticultural education to the residents of Delaware County.   There are many ways to do this but three methods make the education person- and needs-specific:  answering questions sent to the HelpDesk, replying to questions submitted to the state-wide Ask a Master Gardener program, and providing recommendations to improve one’s soil based on samples submitted for analysis.  And one person has worked tirelessly and quietly on all three:  John Heinz.
