The DeKalb Master Gardener Association is just that — an  association of about 40 Master Gardeners and friends in DeKalb County, Georgia.  The organization was formed to foster more extensive educational, community service, and social events for interested Master Gardeners. 

DMGA is classified as a "Master Gardener volunteer organization outside the UGA university structure" and receives no support or public funds through the Cooperative Extension Service.  For information about the DeKalb County Cooperative Extension Service, please visit the following website:




DMGA Meeting -
Monday, February 26, 2018

Speaker: Art Simon
DeKalb Community Garden & Orchard

At DeKalb Master Gardener Association's February meeting, we will learn about the Dunwoody Community Garden and Orchard. The garden now has 92 numbered plots and extensive border plantings. The garden is maintained by individual volunteers, members and a volunteer Board of Directors.

The presenter will be DeKalb County Master Gardener Art Simon. He has been on the Board of the Dunwoody Community Garden (DCGO) since 2011, serving as Chairman for three years and now as Greenhouse Manager. He went to the University of Kentucky and earned an MBA at Xavier in Cincinnati, Ohio. Art has been a Dunwoody resident for 32 years. He is retired and is at the garden almost every day.

DMGA meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Northlake / Barbara Loar Branch of the DeKalb County Public Library located at 3772 LaVista Road, Tucker, GA 30084 (inside I-285, at the corner of Harobi Dr. and LaVista Rd., turn onto Harobi at the BB&T Bank). Click here for a map of the library's location.

Plan to join us for the first meeting of 2018 and bring a friend. There is no charge or pre-registration for this DMGA educational program.
