Master Gardeners are individuals who are passionate about gardening.  We are part of a vast international non-profit Master Gardener organization.  Master Gardeners are a respected group of horticultural persons educated and certified through accredited universities or colleges.

The Manitoba Master Gardener Association (MMGA) is an independent organization and has no affiliation with other Manitoba garden clubs which are listed under the banner.

MMGA Hosts the Film
Five Seasons-the Gardens of Piet Oudolf
Saturday, February 2, 2018 – 12:30pm

Cinematheque, 100 Arthur Street, Winnipeg, MB

This film about the world’s most celebrated garden designer immerses viewers in Oudolf’s work and takes them inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to his theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas.
Discussions take place through all four seasons in Piet’s own gardens at Hummelo and on visits to his signature public works in New York, Chicago and the Netherlands.
The film also follows Oudolf as he designs and installs a major new garden at Hauser and Wirth Somerset a gallery and art centre in southwest England, a garden he considers his best work yet.

Cost:       MMGA Members: $10.00        Non-members: $15.00
