Handouts and Power Points


Adding Educational Components

If the thought of adding educational components to your master gardener projects is a bit intimidating then you need to download this list of ways to do just that.  Created by MMGA member Sue Aagaard, the list will help you think of ways you can fulfill the MMGA mission of educating the community with science based horticultural information.


Fundraising - Beyond the Bake Sale

Bake sales are one of the classic techniques that small organizations use to raise money for their projects.  For master gardeners plant sales are an equivalent.  But are they sustainable.  In this PowerPoint, Northwestern Michigan College Foundation Executive Director Rebecca Teahen shows ways to move your organization toward more sustainable fundraising.


Gaining Publicity 

Don't hide your light under a bushel basket.  Work with local media to help your organization get the publicity you want.  PR person and former journalist Ruth Steele Walker created this PowerPoint to supplement her presentation about when a story becomes news and how to work with reporters.
