Extension Master Gardener volunteers in Anoka County are knowledgeable about horticulture, growing fruits and vegetables, encouraging pollinator insects and birds in the garden, and many more topics that make up the program’s educational priorities.
Volunteers learn from University of Minnesota Extension educators and receive ongoing training to use evidence-based research and best practices that inform their community engagement efforts.
In 2020 Anoka County Master Gardeners began offering the online interactive Q&A service for the first time as a response to canceled in-person events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The group adapted the in-person booths to an online format and offered live Zoom sessions from May to September.
The mission of the University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program is to use research-based horticultural knowledge and practices to deliver educational outreach and project-based efforts that inspire change and promote healthy people, healthy communities and a healthy planet.
