Arlington: County Honors Master Gardener

Arlington: County Honors Master Gardener

Judy Funderburk, a volunteer who has logged more than 6,000 hours of service to the community, much of it nurturing the Glencarlyn Library Community Garden, is Arlington County’s 2015 Bill Thomas Outstanding Park Service Volunteer Award winner.

A certified member of the Master Gardeners of Northern Virginia and Virginia Cooperative Extension, she is so passionate about Glencarlyn Library Community Garden, in south Arlington, that she offers free tours — call 703-671-5310 to schedule one.

Funderburk has participated in other projects in the county. Along the W&OD Trail in Bon Air Park, she rounded up more than a dozen other Master Gardeners to remove invasive plants and plant more than 300 native perennials in their place as part of a meadow restoration effort.
