What is the WIMGA?

We see the acronym, and hear it spoken, but what is the WIMGA?

Wisconsin Master Gardener Association (WIMGA)

WIMGA is a statewide organization whose mission is “to support and provide leadership to individual master gardeners and local organizations in their mission to assist UW-Extension in community horticultural programs through volunteerism, education and environmental stewardship.” The WIMGA is the communication link between MGVs throughout the state and a voice for ideas and issues relating to the MG program. Members of the WIMGA Board of Directors sit on the WI MG Advisory Committee with UW-Extension Horticulture Specialists and Agents to recommend policy for the MG program.
