Collectively, Hanover Master Gardeners volunteer hundreds of thousands of hours to the Hanover County community, educating and assisting children and adults of all ages about the love of gardening. Additionally, we provide grants to Hanover County educators for agricultural projects in grades K-12.

As we spread the good word about how much fun the Hanover Master Gardener Association is, we invite new friends and faces to join the fold and reap the benefits of becoming a member. Once you have completed the Master Gardener Training Course (starting Jan of each year), we invite you! Get a cool name badge, HMG hat and gain the distiction of enhanced knowledge of our natural world.

The HMG Association invites and welcomes all Hanover Master Gardeners to join in the fun! The greatest benefit is in knowing you are supporting the organization that supports you and your community as a Master Gardener.
