The Master Gardener (MG) program in Wisconsin has grown dramatically over the years from its inception in the late 1970’s. UW-Extension hired the first full-time MG Program Coordinator in July 1999. The Master Gardener Program is administered through the Master Gardener Program Office, providing training and other educational programs, print and electronic communications to keep UW-Extension Master Gardener Volunteers connected, record-keeping and other services to the Master Gardener Volunteers of the state of Wisconsin.
