Through a direct partnership with the University of Saskatchewan’s Gardening@USask program, the Manitoba Master Gardener Association (MMGA), offers the academic training portion towards certifying as a Manitoba Master Gardener. This 10-course basic training program is available completely online in an on-demand format – meaning you can start anytime and complete the courses entirely on your own schedule.

The MMGA now totally manages the service component of the preparation of Master Gardeners – called the Practicum. The Practicum consists of 40 hours of volunteer service undertaken by interns in roles similar to those fulfilled by Certified Master Gardeners.

Please see the sections MG Certification and MG Practicum for details.

Transferring into the new online program – interns who started in previous years.

If you have not completed the requirements, you may transfer directly into the new MMGA/USask program, bringing credits already achieved and Practicum hours already completed.
Please contact for more information.
