Started in 1988, MGATC has over 200 members with a wide variety of gardening interests.  Membership requires taking the Purdue Master Gardener Program training, and completing volunteer hours in our gardens or our community projects. MGATC facilitates getting the volunteer and educational hours required to maintain Purdue Master Gardener status.  A Purdue Master Gardener can also provide information and knowledge to people in their community on home horticulture and gardening. The group holds monthly meetings with guest speakers, and public workshops on a variety of gardening topics scheduled throughout the year.

The Purdue Master Gardener Program is an integral part of the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service and provides the citizens of Indiana a framework to increase their knowledge on a wide variety of horticultural subjects and techniques.  

Congratulations to our Outstanding Master Gardeners for 2016, Jim Mailloux & Jim Smith
And our OMG Support Person of the Year, Lynn Laden, and OMG "Rookie" of the Year, Margo Schueman
