The Extension Master Gardener Program educates, empowers, and supports volunteers to use university research-based information to extend the Wisconsin Idea, making a positive difference in lives and communities. Join us to learn about the program with Master Gardener Ed Meachen, former Association Vice President for Learning and Information Technology at UW System Administration.
Master Gardeners are people interested in gardening and horticulture who receive training and education in science-based horticulture from UW-Madison’s Division of Extension. Upon successful completion of an examination they are certified as Master Gardeners. To maintain certification, each year Master Gardeners must complete 10 hours of continuing education and 24 hours of volunteer service supporting public gardens. Ed has served as President of MAMGA (Madison Area Master Gardeners Association) since 2014. Ed will share its history, membership, goals, mission, and purpose of master gardening, and his journey from gardening in my yard to master garden certification.
