Since the Michigan Master Gardener program began, Master Gardeners have logged tens of thousands of volunteer hours on projects that focus on education and beautification.   Michigan Master Gardener projects are diverse... from beautification projects at schools, libraries and health care facilities  to creating children's gardens to teaching Junior Master Gardeners to working with troubled youth at community gardens as part of their community service.   There's a master gardener project for everyone!

In addition to working in the community, Michigan Master Gardeners have the opportunity to work at the state level to help the Michigan Master Gardener Association grow and flourish.   If you're interested in helping the MMGA grow and flourish, we'd love to talk with you.  There are opportunities to volunteer at Master Gardener College, on board committees and on the board itself.   To learn more just email us at info@mmgainc.com
