North Carolina Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Association


Who We Are

The NCEMGVA was formed in 1991 to aid in improving the effectiveness of its members as volunteers in the Extension Master Gardener program of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension. 

The Association sponsors educational and training activities for North Carolina‚Äôs Master Gardeners in partnership with county and multi-county programs and the Cooperative Extension. 

We offer competitive grants to county programs, host an annual landscape garden design competition, and publish a quarterly newsletter for members with upcoming events, features, and other items of interest to the Master Gardener community of North Carolina.

Ordering the EMG License Plate

If you applied for the EMG License Plate during NCEMGVA's campaign earlier this year, you should have received your numbered plate by now or a notification from DMV with instructions on how to get it. Those who ordered the personalized plates (with your own combination of letters and numbers) should be receiving them soon.

If you are interested in ordering a plate, you can do so now by visiting any DMV office and picking up an application.  Eventually you will also be able to apply for the plate online at , but our plate has not yet been added to the online listing.

The cost of a numbered plate is $20.00 annually in addition to your regular registration fee ($50.00 if you want the personalized version).  $10.00 of the fee is automatically donated to the NC Extension Master Gardener Endowment, maintained by the Agricultural Foundation at NC State.

501(c)(3) Group Determination

On November 10, NCEMGVA's Application for a 501(c)(3) Group Determination was approved by the IRS! 
This means
that county EMG organizations can acquire 501(c)(3) status under the Association's umbrella at much lower cost than
applying individually.   For more information, see the President's report in the Winter 2014 issue of the NCEMGVA newsletter. (11/16/14)
