Friday Focus: 2022 Volunteer Development Series                         

TEMG's have the opportunity to participate in educational training sessions that connect local Master Gardener associations across the state with each other.  We will virtually tour demonstration plots, service projects, and even cross state lines and glimpse into other Extension Master Gardener programs from across the Nation. These sessions are offered every other month on the fourth Friday of that month at 10am.  These sessions are open to certified TEMGs only, and will equip TEMGs with new ideas and connections! 


Stay tuned for dates and meeting links for the 2022 sessions

2021 IMPACT SURVEY

Note from MCMG Coordinator, Celeste Scott

Hey Master Gardeners,

It is that time of year again when I ask you all to provide me with honest feedback concerning Horticulture Programs from the current year.  I ask that EVERYONE (no matter how active/inactive) take 5-7 minutes to answer these 10 questions for me.  I can not impress upon you how important it is that we get as many responses as possible.  This information is used to PROVE the value of Extension programs in our county (including the TEMG Program).  I also use these responses to guide my planning for NEXT year.  I want to know your thoughts and suggestions. 

This survey is open to ALL who have participated in any type of horticulture related education provided by Madison County Extension. 

This includes but is not limited to: Website Use, Gardeners Toolshed Classes, Master Gardener Programs/Meetings/Classes, Facebook LIVE sessions, Zoom Classes, In-person classes/workshops, Plant Sales, Community Events, ect…..
