MANITOBA MASTER GARDENER ASSOCIATION

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.

Mission Statement:

The Manitoba Master Gardener Association (MMGA) cultivates the development and continuous education of Master Gardeners, supports volunteerism and encourages sustainable, proven gardening practices throughout Manitoba.

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. Click to view: Resources- Garden Club News
