Ozaukee Master Gardeners are members of the Master Gardener volunteer program, a statewide program of the University of Wisconsin Extension.
Ozaukee Master Gardeners receive horticulture training from UW-Extension specialists and faculty and local experts. In return for their training, Master Gardeners assist their local County Extension office in educational programs and horticulture projects that enhance Ozaukee County.
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.
