On the Road with Master Gardeners

Only one more travelogue left this year!

Join Master Gardener Rachel Seppi on Monday, May 4 as she shares her experiences hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.

Come hear about her adventure!

Become a Master Gardener

New classes begin in March!   The Master Gardener program is an all-volunteer organization sanctioned by Land Grant institutions in each state, and functions as an extension of the college or university. In Wisconsin, the program is sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Extension.  The goal of the MG Program is to train enthusiastic volunteers so they can, in turn, provide research-based information on a wide variety of horticultural topics to their communities.  Find out how easy it is to become a Master Gardener!
