Ramsey County Master Gardeners volunteer thousands of hours in our community interacting with youth and adults. Master Gardeners work in many different project areas including Habitat for Humanity, Ramsey County yard waste sites, farmers markets, school planting projects, community classes, and many others.  Master Gardeners focus on sharing best horticultural  practices and University of Minnesota researched based garden solutions with the public. A few 2019 highlights: 

  • Ramsey County Master Gardeners partnered with Ramsey County Public Housing and Public Health to bring gardening resources to PHA residents.  They serve as Garden Mentors to their neighbors.  
  • At yard waste sites, we taught patrons about organic recycling to reduce waste and to compost at home if they can.
  •  In partnership with the Ramsey Washington Metro Watershed district, we helped elementary students learn how to stratify, plant and transplant native plant seedlings into rain gardens and water restoration projects throughout the county. 
  • Active in the urban community garden movement, we helped folks grow their own food- increasing food access and food security. 

Ramsey County Master Gardeners want residents to be environmentally friendly gardeners.

Help us teach residents about pollinators, waste reduction, water conservation, integrated pest management practices, and how to:

  •  increase green space in their communities
  •   grow food 
  •  create environmentally friendly yards and gardens. 

Consider making a donation to our program. Funds raised will be applied  to our general fund. Some funds are given back to the community to youth organizations that apply with a need for gardening materials, soil, compost, raised beds, plants or seeds. Donations  may also be put into our financial assistance fund which helps new interns in our program pay for the cost of their University horticultural training.
