Union County Master Gardeners

The Union County Extension Master Gardenerâ„  Volunteer Association (UCEMGVA) has a primary goal: to provide gardening information to the public in Union County, NC and the surrounding area.

We are a volunteer organization that is part of the NC State Cooperative Extension program and we have been serving our community since 1989. Our mission is to foster partnerships that create sustainable communities through education and implementation. In other words, we like to help and teach our community about good gardening practices, composting, integrated pest management, and homegrown food production, just to name a few. Our home base is the Union County Agricultural and Conference Center in Monroe, NC, where we maintain our Teaching Gardens, Greenhouse, Heritage Trail and the location of our annual Heritage Festival.
