Ozaukee Master Gardeners are members of the Wisconsin Master Gardener volunteer program, a statewide program of the University of Wisconsin-Extension.
Master Gardeners receive horticulture training from UW-Extension specialists and local experts in order to assist their local County UW-Extension office in educational programs and horticulture projects which enhance the community.
Our organization has over 100 members who contribute about 7000 hours annually to a variety of projects and activities in Ozaukee County. Our major fundraising event is our annual Heirloom Plant and Herb Sale. The funds raised at plant sale support our projects.
- To serve the needs of gardeners in Ozaukee County by providing university research-based horticultural information and educational opportunities, designed to supplement programs of the University of Wisconsin-Extension (UWEX).
- To promote understanding of responsible gardening practices and provide a link between the community and UWEX.
- To develop and increase horticultural knowledge for all Master Gardeners, thereby providing effective horticultural resources and expertise for Ozaukee County residents.
