Coordinator Corner – May 2023


Volunteering to "Learn More", Monthly Meetings 2023, SignUp Genius - SWAP Feature

Message from the Coordinator

The gardening season is upon us. What an exciting and busy time of year! I know many of us are busy planting and maintaining our home gardens. In addition to our home gardens I know many of you are volunteering and contributing in so many ways. THANK YOU for sharing your time and talents with the Ramsey County Master Gardener Volunteer Program and the residents of Ramsey County.

Remember to take time for yourself and your families. Relax, take a deep breath, and enjoy the gardens and natural areas around you.


Volunteering to "Learn More"

Thanks again to everyone who attended the project fair in March and then signed up to "Learn More" about the various RCMG projects. The project leaders have been notified of your interest and will add your names to their call list for opportunities to get involved with their projects.
