ABOUT DMGA

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:  www.caes.uga.edu/extension/dekalb

 


 

 
 
 

DMGA Meeting - Monday, February 27

Speaker: Patricia Kyritsi Howell

For our February 2017 meeting, DeKalb Master Gardener Association has arranged a presentation by Patricia Kyritsi Howell on "Medicinal Uses for Common Plants Grown in DeKalb County."

Patricia is a registered herbalist and author. With her background, she will be able to help us view the common plants around us in new, interesting ways.

This DMGA meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Tucker-Reid H. Cofer Library located at 5234 LaVista Road, Tucker GA. Click here for a map of the library's location. (Note that this meeting is NOT at our usual Northlake Library location.)

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



DMGA Announces Scholarship Recipients for 2016-2017

At the October 2016 monthly meeting, DeKalb Master Gardener Association awarded a trio of horticulture scholarships for the 2016-2017 academic year.   Scholarship checks of $500 were awarded to the following three Gwinnett Technical College students:

Mr. Alexander Jarrard
Mr. Thomas Kmetz
Ms. Taryn Phillips

Under a program created in 2006, DMGA awards scholarships each year to DeKalb County residents attending UGA or Gwinnett Tech. We enjoy the opportunity to promote and encourage horticulture education in this way.

Our congratulations to these deserving students and our best wishes for their future successful careers in horticulture.
