Support Our Program

The fees charged for classes and educational seminars do not cover the full cost of offering the MSU Extension Master Gardener program. Please consider supporting this valuable program and its activities so we can continue to make a difference for communities across Michigan. Your donation might help start a new community garden project; sponsor an educational event; provide fresh, local produce for residents in need; or teach children real life applications of math and science concepts through gardening.
