A Great Day for Gardeners!
The Peterborough & Area Master Gardeners are a group of dedicated gardeners who enjoy volunteering their time and knowledge by providing gardening advice to the public. They meet formally nine times a year on the second Wednesday of the month during which they try to either bring in speakers or go to horticultural establishments for more ‘hands on’ activities. They exchange ideas, plants and knowledge within the group and are always keen to keep up with the rapidly changing face of horticulture. They also visit gardens and interesting nurseries and occasionally organize horticultural bus trips.
Get out of the cold and join The Peterborough & Area Master Gardeners for a wonderful afternoon lunch to “Talk Plants” at Activity Haven on March 4th located at 180 Barnardo Avenue in Peterborough.

The Peterborough and Area Master Gardener group was formed in 1990 and the first Coordinator was Kathy Pimmett. By the spring of 2005, their membership grew to approximately 35 and the area encompassed Apsley, Norwood, Indian River, Lakefield, Young’s Point, Omemee, Port Hope, Cobourg, Gore’s Landing as well as Peterborough. In September 2005, with the support of the Peterborough group, about ten of our members from the Port Hope, Cobourg and Gore’s Landing areas formed the nucleus of the Northumberland Master Gardener.

The Master Gardener program began in Washington State in 1972 in response to the overwhelming number of requests for gardening information. Volunteers were trained in horticulture to provide gardening advice to the public. Master Gardener Programs now operate in 45 states and 4 provinces in Canada.
