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, March 25, 2019

Sabirah Islam and Eli Winterscheidt:
Earth Tomorrow

Join DeKalb Master Gardener Association on March 25th for a presentation by two juniors at Tucker High School -- Sabirah Islam and Eli Winterscheidt. You may have seen them on the cover of Tucker's "Up Close and Personal."

Sabirah and Eli will tell us about their volunteering with Earth Tomorrow, a chapter of the National Wildlife Federation. They are part of an environmental science club that focuses on our local community. They focus on projects in recycling, conservation, and being able to provide healthier and more sustainable food options for people.

Earth Tomorrow is the National Wildlife Federation’s multicultural environmental education and leadership development program, creating opportunities for youth in underserved communities to develop environmental literacy and life skills that will help them make valuable contributions to the ecological health and leadership of their communities.

The program, operated out of Atlanta through the National Wildlife Federation's South Central Regional Center, cultivates a new generation of lifetime environmental stewards through a year-long cycle of leadership training, issues exploration, civic engagement, career development, community outreach and education, and student-led community action projects for urban teens.

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.). The parking and entrance are on Harobi Drive. The meeting room is inside the front door and to the left. Click here for a map of the library's location.

Come hear these two students tell us about what they're doing from Tucker to Clarkston. Join us for this meeting and bring a friend. There is no charge or pre-registration for our DMGA educational programs.
