Growing Communities.

The Georgia Master Gardener Extension Volunteer (MGEV) Program connects UGA Extension, plant enthusiasts, and communities across the state. MGEVs share UGA Extension consumer horticulture programming about selection and care of plants for ornamental value, recreation, and home food production. Master Gardeners teach community members how to use plants and gardening to improve their environment, personal health, and quality of life.


On August 23rd and 24th, 2019, Georgians of all ages from all over the state will join efforts to document our pollinators. Won't you join us?
