from groups throughout the province who
were nominated by Master Gardeners of

"When it comes to cultivating passion, energy and talent, Canada's Master Gardeners are standouts.
Master Gardeners are dedicated to the art and science of gardening. And, with their generosity
of knowledge and time --on public garden tours, at local horticulture societies, at small shows and
big ones such as Canada Blooms and in various online forums -- they help sustain a broader
community of Canadian gardeners."
