Master Gardener

Michigan Master Gardener Program (MGP)

The Michigan State University Extension Master Gardener Program (MGP) is a horticulture education and volunteer leader training program.  Volunteers are committed to improving the quality of life in Michigan through horticulture-based volunteerism and beautifying communities throughout the state.


The MSU Extension Master Gardener Program serves two major and equal functions:

To provide instruction in basic, research-based horticulture science to motivated and active gardeners through an adult (18 years or older) educational program offered through MSU Extension.

To provide MSU Extension with trained gardeners who will educate others in the community about environmentally and economically sound practices through horticulture-based volunteer activities.
