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 State Extension. 

The Association sponsors educational and training activities for North Carolina’s Master Gardeners in partnership with county and multi-county programs and the State 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.

Meet Connie Schultz
Johnston County 

Connie became a Master Gardener in 1995 through the Cornell Extension where I also became a Master Composter. Following my husband's job, I also worked/volunteered as a Master Gardener in Utah and Connecticut before moving finally to North Carolina in 2008. I now volunteer in Johnston County. I'm an organic/sustainable gardener and my main gardening interest is working with community gardens or school gardens.Connie Schultz I learned about Social Media when I volunteered for an Extension program on blogging and social media. I've been involved in that program for about 4 years now and have learned so much. This project has just developed an on-line Social Media Certificate program for EMGs interested in promoting Extension's services and information through their local Extension office.  I am also excited to be working on the new NC EMG manual which is looking great! Several chapters are already posted.
My all time favorite plant is day lilies because they're so tough and versatile and always put on a great flower show.

This will be an ongoing area to meet fellow EMGV's from across the state.  Check back for updates.
