160 volunteers--teaching the public to grow food, compost, and reduce their chemical use in gardens--all using University research
When you ask for information from a Master Gardener, you get up-to-date, researched information on pest management, composting, and growing your own fruits and vegetables.
Ramsey County Master Gardeners volunteer hundreds of hours in our community interacting with youth and adults. Master Gardeners work in many different project areas including Habitat for Humanity, Ramsey County compost sites, farmer's markets, school planting projects, community classes, and many others. Master Gardeners focus on sharing best practices and University of Minnesota researched garden solutions with the public.
