Mark your calendars for June 15! Every
year our Master Gardeners spend months finding the most beautiful
and/or interesting gardens in the Fox Cities to create a day filled
with wonder, and dedicated to helping the St. Joseph's Food Program
and Salvation Army. A $7 entry fee plus two items of
non-perishable food are asked of each visitor to the seven gardens
that will be on display this year in Menasha and Appleton.

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!
In addition to visiting our website, come join us on
Facebook. Enjoy photographs from recent events, and the
stories and photos posted by members. We also have
information about interesting websites, current events happening in
the world of gardening and gardeners, and tidbits gathered from a
variety of sources.
We're one of 52 chapters of the Wisconsin
Master Gardener Program. Master Gardeners Volunteers are
trained volunteers who assist staff at the University of
Wisconsin-Extension by helping the community understand
horticulture and its significance to the environment. Master
Gardener Volunteers are involved in a variety of community
activities, including youth and adult education projects.
Within our organization are experts on a wide-ranging variety of
topics; please contact us if you need a Speaker for your next
