Mission: To encourage, support and promote horticulture to the residents of Kewaunee County through quality educational programs.

Master Gardeners are individuals who have an interest in horticulture, have taken Master Gardener training offered by UW-Extension and share their time and expertise with others. It is the acquisition of knowledge, the skill in gardening, and giving back to the community that distinguishes UW-Extension Master Gardeners from other gardeners.

The purpose of the Wisconsin Master Gardener Program is to provide unbiased, research-based horticultural information to the citizens of Wisconsin through Master Gardener volunteers.
Master Gardeners receive training in horticulture through the University of Wisconsin Extension. In return for their training, Master Gardeners volunteer in extension horticulture programs and service projects which enhance the community.

Master Gardeners provide many services to the UW-Extension Service and their communities. They use their knowledge, talents, and skills on various projects and activities, such as: answering horticultural questions and phone calls in the county extension office, sponsoring clinics and educational programs, developing educational displays, and giving horticultural presentations. Master Gardeners also assist with youth gardening programs, plant demonstrations and city beautification gardens,
