By becoming a member of the Michigan Master Gardener Association, Inc. (MMGA) you join fellow Extension Master Gardeners (EMGs) across the state to form a collective voice for the Extension Master Gardener program. MMGA’s mission is to support our members, allowing you to continue your generous volunteer efforts to enhance the beauty of our state and to improve the quality of life in your local community and around the state.

Our strength and success depends on the support of Extension Master Gardeners like you. Membership is open to every currently certified EMG and every EMG Volunteer in Training working on basic certification. The membership fee helps us continue to provide important benefits such as:

  • Presenting a collective voice to all Extension Master Gardeners in Michigan

  • Providing opportunities to network with fellow EMGs across the state

  • Furnishing liability insurance coverage for EMGs while volunteering

Membership is just $5 per year!

All certified Extension Master Gardeners in good standing are eligible for membership. An EMG in good standing has completed the required number of volunteer hours (twenty) and the required number of education hours (ten) for the year AND has completed the recertification process in the Volunteer Management System (VMS).

Extension Master Gardener Volunteers in Training (EMGITs) are also eligible for membership while they are in the one year period during which they are completing the required volunteer hours for certification.

We hope that you will join us in our efforts to ensure the continued success of the Extension Master Gardener program.  To join, simply click on the “Join Now” link below to fill out our online form or download the membership form in PDF format.
