Plant Doctor Clinics

Plant Doctor Clinics are scheduled throughout the year from spring to fall at five locations throughout the city of Virginia Beach. Currently, Plant Doctor Clinics are offered at the Virginia Beach Farmer’s Market, Oceana Naval Exchange Garden Center, Little Creek Naval Exchange Garden Center, Croc’s Farmer’s Market, and Shore Drive Farmer’s Market. Clinics are staffed by Master Gardener volunteers to assist the public face-to-face. Volunteers are prepared to answer general gardening questions, as well as troubleshoot gardening and insect problems. For a complete schedule of each Plant Doctor Clinic location, please see our Calendar of Events.
