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’s 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.
