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.

Hurray! The EMG License Plates began arriving in the mail today (11/20)! Carla Carpenter of Wake County sent in the picture below of her new plate:
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.
The Winter Issue of the NCEMGVA Newsletter is now Available. Click here to download.
The EMG License Plate is now in Production!
The latest: With our special plate "re-enacted" by the Legislature on August 1, we made our formal submission, with 308 applications, to DMV on August 18. The artwork has been approved and DMV has started production. Mailing of the standard plates should begin in a couple of months. The personalized plates will take a bit longer. Thanks to all who have applied and campaigned to make the plate a reality!
Click here to download a copy of the application. Half of the $20.00 annual fee for the plate will be automatically donated to the NC Extension Master Endowment, maintained by the Agricultural Foundation at NC State.
