Etobicoke Master Gardeners (EMG) was formed in January 2005 and is meant to cover the west side of Toronto and take in those people who want to study for the Master Gardener (MG) designation.
Meetings are held at the Montgomery Inn on the fourth Wednesday of most months from 7 to 10 p.m.
EMG comprises 36 active members: 26 Master Gardeners (MG) and 10 Master Gardeners in Training (MGIT) who are in the process of studying for Master Gardener Certification. We welcome inquiries from enthusiastic and interested individuals wishing to learn more about joining our group.
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
