Educating people where they live and work about horticultural best practices.
Master Gardeners are University of Minnesota-trained volunteers who educate the public on a variety of horticulture subjects using up-to-date, research-based information. This educational effort is designed to enhance the public’s quality of life and to promote good stewardship of the environment.
More than 100 Master Gardeners live in Washington County and volunteer several thousand hours each year to educate others. Activities range from teaching Community Education classes, diagnosing plant problems, and answering questions at “Ask a Master Gardener” events, to helping people in the community with their environmental issues such as water quality, invasive species and noxious weeds.
MGWC is self-supporting through its own fundraising efforts.
