The Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative could not be as successful as it is without the dedicated support from all of our partners, including schools, government agencies, non profits, and businesses.

Alcona County Master Gardeners

Helping people and communities grow...

The MSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program (MGVP) provides interested individuals with the chance to take part in a focused, 12-week training experience that provides in-depth education in many aspects of horticulture, including trees and shrubs, flowers, vegetables, fruit, soil, water, pests, indoor plants and lawns.

Individuals who complete the training can get involved in local gardening activities, sharing the joys of gardening with people of all ages, and teaching environmentally friendly gardening practices. Volunteers will have the opportunity to help other gardeners solve garden problems and participate in special projects that improve our communities.

For more information on the Alcona County Master Gardeners please contact Diana Zeimen at zeimendi@msu.edu
