Master Gardener training was offered by Marquette County UW-Extension in 1998 for the first time. After completion of the 12 week class, the participants met with the intent of forming an organization that would concentrate on a horticultural outreach in Marquette County. TSMGV&F was formed on September 20, 1999. This organization is an extension of the UWEX Marquette County but is responsible for the programs and activities that focus on horticultural related topics.
We have learned new ways of doing old things, socialized and made many good friends along the stimulating road to becoming better gardeners and stewards of our ‘space’. It is our desire to take our love of gardening one step further – out into the community; where, through education & volunteer service, we can share our knowledge and help people with questions and/or concerns.
