Thank you for your ongoing support of the MMGA.  Each year we hope to earn your trust and your renewal so that we can continue to work on behalf of master gardeners throughout Michigan as a collective voice with MSU. by helping master gardeners around the state get to know each other and share ideas together and by providing the peace of mind that having liability insurance while you're working on master gardener projects provides.

Renewal starts each January after you have recertified.  Once you are recertified you can renew your membership online and pay your dues using PayPal or you can do it by USPS mail.  To renew by mail download a membership form here and send it with your check according to the instructions provided on the form.
