CT Master Gardener Association Symposium
CMGA is the alumni association for Master Gardeners residing in Connecticut. If you attained your certification in another state, you are welcome to join! The purpose of the association is to keep Master Gardeners connected once they have graduated, to enhance and supplement the MG Program, and to share our gardening knowledge and expertise. See CMGA History for more information.
With over 1000 members, our association has a strong influence on gardening activities in the State. Our members share a passion for gardening and a strong desire to give back to their communities.
CMGA works closely with UConn’s Home & Garden Education Center and the Cooperative Extension offices in each county to provide Connecticut’s many home gardeners with information and answers to their questions about horticulture and landscaping. We do this with educational events like our annual symposium at Manchester Community College and smaller workshops around the state. Our members are also very active in local volunteer projects, such as community gardens and beautification programs. See CMGA Projects for highlights of our work in the past year.
