Poster Sharing Forum

Extension Master Gardeners are working on amazing projects all throughout the state. This poster sharing forum provides the opportunity to share information and ideas, learn from fellow Extension Master Gardeners and showcase a variety of projects.

In order to help simplify the process, we have created some helpful tips for Extension Master Gardeners to use throughout this growing season to prepare for the 2020 Poster Sharing Forum. 


The Extension Master Gardener Poster Sharing Forum is a program developed to recognize and share the wonderful Extension Master Gardener (EMG) volunteer projects occurring throughout Michigan. The program coincides with the annual Master Gardener College.

We hope to inspire many of you to share your projects at the 2020 Master Gardener College in June! This is a great opportunity to network with EMGs from across the state, share your project ideas, and grow your own project. Inspire others and be inspired!

Entries to the EMG Poster Sharing Forum will be evaluated and the top three entries will be given first, second, and third place titles. If a large number of submissions are received, project evaluations may be done by categories rather than all together. All Poster Sharing Forum applications must show that meaningful learning occurred for the project audience.
