Home Food Production

MGEVs are involved in projects around the state that teach the benefits of home food production. Along with those they educate, MGEVs develop skills and knowledge in growing food, managing community and demonstration gardens, or contributing to food banks or kitchens. In addition, Master Gardeners are present at county fairs and farmer’s markets where they carry out educational and engaging activities with the community. MGEVs also interact with the public through the creation of seed libraries that make a variety of seeds available for use in home gardens.
