About the Master Gardeners in Anoka County

Master Gardeners are University of Minnesota-trained volunteers whose job is to educate the public about a variety of horticulture subjects using readily-available, up-to-date research-based information. This educational effort is designed to enhance the public's quality of life and to promote good stewardship of the environment. 

Anoka County Master Gardeners:

  • Educate adults by teaching classes at the Home Landscaping and garden Fair, the Walk in the Garden Series or upon request by local organizations (see our Events page)
  • Educate youth in schools through the Junior Master Gardener program, the GAPS Challenge program and 4H programs
  • Provide landscape design and instruction for Habitat for Humanity sites
  • Answer residents' horticulture questions via the Yard and Garden Line phone service
  • Serve weekly throughout summer at the Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinics
  • Set up Ask A Master Gardener Booths at local garden centers, community events, Anoka County Fair and at the Nowthen Threshing Show
  • Assist with partnering organizations such as Great River Greening, local watershed districts, Anoka County Parks
  • Design and maintain the Anoka County Veteran's Peace and Master Gardener Demonstration Garden
