Meet the Master Gardener State Advisory Board!

| 1 Comment

The State Master Gardener Advisory Board exists to provide input to the State Master Gardener office to inform governing policies for the program. The board works tirelessly to unite the program throughout the state, and to ensure that the volunteers' voices are heard. Many thanks to our board members for their commitment to both the board and the Master Gardener Program!

An important goal of the Master Gardener program is to answer the public's questions about gardening using University research-based information. Find answers to your questions several ways - whatever suits you!

Online: The Extension Garden website is filled with useful information, including diagnostic tools, Extension publications, Yard & Garden News, and more.

By phone: Many Minnesota counties have garden hotlines managed by local Master Gardeners. Find yours. If your county doesn't have a hotline, you may also call the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum Yard & Garden Line at (952) 443-1426 and leave a message. A Master Gardener will return your call.
