Grand Erie Master Gardeners (formerly Brantford Master Gardeners) includes the cities of Brantford, St. George, Paris, Glen Morris, Waterford, Hamilton, Burford, and Scotland. Join our Grand Erie Master Gardeners. We are experienced gardeners who started as Master Gardeners in Training and had the opportunity to study horticulture through Guelph University courses.
Once we receive our MG status, we upgrade our skills through technical training. Our ongoing mandate is to provide horticultural advice to the general public through garden tours, community events, online and talks.
We would love to have you join our group. Contact Lynne Goulet-Smith (Co-coordinator) - firstname.lastname@example.org
The Master Gardener concept was originally created in Washington State (USA) in 1972. Ontario’s first pilot sites began in Brigden, Englehart and London with 39 participants. The next year, Brantford, Stratford, Ottawa, Windsor, Algoma West, Burlington and St. Catharines joined and brought with them another 154 new volunteers.
Every month we post a new article about a plant species native to Ontario which includes cultivation and gardening tips to enhance the beauty of your garden with our own regional native plants
