  • The activities of the Master Gardeners benefit schools, community gardens, youth programs, environmental education programs and farmers markets, to name a few. Learn more in the 2015 Master Gardener Annual Report.
  • More than 2,800 participants from Minnesota and beyond have graduated from Extension's leadership and civic engagement programs.
