The Michigan Master Gardener Program is a horticulture education and volunteer leader training program offered by MSU Extension. It provides home gardening information to Michigan citizens through a network of trained volunteers. An interest in plants, a personal commitment to volunteerism, and an enthusiasm for sharing knowledge with others are the only prerequisites. Applicants attend classes in their county, learning basic horticultural principles and environmentally sound gardening practices. They then provide volunteer leadership and service to their community through a variety of gardening-related activities. The program objectives are to provide instruction in basic horticultural science to motivated active gardeners and to provide MSU Extension with trained volunteers who will provide timely, accurate information to the public in the rapidly expanding area of home horticulture.

MSU Extension educators and researchers are partnering to present the Pollinator Health Meetings, to discuss projects that MSU staff are working on and the opportunities in your area for supporting pollinators. This is part of a USDA funded project running for the next three years that aims to support honey bees, wild bees and monarch populations across Michigan. Please join us for a short presentation of current projects, followed by a discussion with extension educators and researchers on how we can support and build local efforts towards pollinator health in your region.
