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.  Experienced in gardening knowledge, we love to ‘pass on our knowledge’ through various mediums such as seminars, workshops, tv/radio appearances, info booths or helping organizations begin gardening programs.  The volunteer opportunities are varied and rewarding.

We want to help the gardeners of Manitoba be inspired and motivated in the joy of gardening.

The Manitoba Master Gardener Association was formally organized in 2011 as a supporting and networking body for Master Gardeners in Training as well as Certified Master Gardeners in the Province of Manitoba.  The concept of the MMGA began in July, 2010 when a group of Master Gardeners recognized  the need for a central organization to facilitate communication between Master Gardeners in Manitoba.
