Master Gardeners make a difference

Master Gardeners are your neighbors who volunteer to bring University horticulture information to local communities. They teach at schools, community gardens, youth programs, hospitals, retirement centers and homes for the disabled.

Through their work, community bonds are strengthened and Minnesota citizens are better equipped to make healthy choices in their gardening practices, promoting healthy plants for healthier people and a healthier planet.

Across Minnesota, Master Gardeners keep communities informed on topics such as increasing plant biodiversity, adapting to climate change, growing local food, supporting pollinators and conserving water.
