Crow Wing County Master Gardener volunteers help their neighbors understand and use research-based information and practices that can improve their quality of life while minimizing negative impacts on the environment and natural resources.
Master Gardeners strive to make scientific knowledge understandable to all. They inspire and encourage lifelong learning through continued scientific exploration and discovery.
Because of the work of Master Gardeners, more people are growing food locally, planting pollinator-friendly gardens, and creating resilient landscapes that help manage storm water runoff.
Now more than ever before Master Gardener volunteers are connecting with people to share University research-based knowledge on priorities that are important to Minnesota residents: horticulture skills, plant biodiversity, pollinators, clean water, local food, climate change and nearby nature.
