Know-How Series

Educating the gardening public is central to the MMGA’s mission. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck in 2020 and we all started spending more time at home, the number of people looking to learn about gardening grew exponentially. To meet this need, the MMGA created a new educational offering for gardeners at every level: seasonally-focused series of lectures, offered online on weeknight evenings. We are happy to say that feedback has been enthusiastic, and hundreds of home gardeners have now participated. Based on your positive response, we are continuing this program.
