Community Work

The Massachusetts Master Gardeners get involved in our communities in many ways. There is a program suited for your garden club, youth group or to help you with your own gardening.

Speakers Bureau

What is the Speakers’ Bureau?  It is a group of Massachusetts Master Gardeners who are available to speak to garden clubs, civic organizations, schools and other groups on a wide variety of topics from the world of gardening, horticulture, landscaping and the environment.  Speakers choose the topics in which they feel proficient and offer slide or PowerPoint programs to illustrate their talk.  The Speakers’ Bureau also offers a limited number of demonstrations and hands-on workshops.
