Breaking Records During


Master Gardener Volunteers team up with Habitat for Humanity!

In our partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Ramsey County Master Gardener Volunteers work with new homeowners to create a landscape design that improves their new home and appeals to them as homeowners. Volunteers help to install the plants alongside the residents and provide them with education on how to care for their new gardens, shrubs and trees. In 2020, a team of 27 Ramsey County Master Gardener Volunteers helped to install landscapes for a record-breaking 8 new homes, despite COVID-19 restrictions. We created new signs and teaching aids that illustrated how to correctly plant perennials and educational tips to manage water runoff.

Community Get-Togethers

The primary service that Ramsey County Master Gardener Volunteers provide is access to research-based information from the University of Minnesota.


We are stationed around the county at various events throughout the year in-person and often offer handouts or give-away items based on the nature of the event. Hope to see you at our RCMG Volunteer Booth at one of these events!
