Our Mission

To continue educating ourselves in all aspects of gardening and to convey our knowledge to others in conjunction with the Virginia Tech Master Gardener Program.

History of the Master Gardeners

The Master Gardener program was established in 1972 in Washington State to meet the needs of the public and home gardener.

The Suffolk Master Gardener program was initiated in 1994. Currently, SMGA holds annual Master Gardener courses on an alternating day/evening class schedule.
