History of the Organization
Established in 1985, Master Gardeners of Ontario Inc. (MGOI) is an independent non-profit organization, run by volunteers, dedicated to providing accurate and relevant horticultural information to the public. The Master Gardener program in
Ontario was started by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) and was funded by them until 1996 when MGOI was created and incorporated as an independent non-profit organization.
Master Gardeners (MGs) in the Province of Ontario are experienced gardeners who have studied horticulture extensively and continue to upgrade their skills through technical training. To learn more about Master Gardeners visit mgoi.ca

Our upcoming Workshop Topic on April 15, 2023 is "Native Plants " - Virtual Workshop
Join Etobicoke Master Gardeners and the Humber Arboretum for a free workshop on Native Plant Gardening. Native plants are those plants which occur naturally in an area, having evolved locally alongside each other and with the native wildlife. They are a fundamental part of local ecology, and without them many other species cannot survive. Learn about the many benefits both to gardeners and the environment, and about Native Plant choices for your garden.
Thank you to all those who attended and contributed towards a successful 2022 EMG Plant Fair. We look forward to seeing you at our 2023 May event.
