Racine Kenosha Master Gardener Association


The mission of the Racine Kenosha Master Gardener Association (RKMGA) is to educate, beautify and preserve the community through trained horticulture volunteers. Master Gardeners may enhance their Master Gardener experience by joining the association which is part of WIMGA, the WI Master Gardener Association.

WIMGA is a statewide organization whose vision is to be the collective voice for local Master Gardener Associations and individual members in active support for their horticultural projects and services; build networks to enhance outreach, share ideas and promote projects; and help extend University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Horticulture, Division of Extension Master Gardener Program’s educational role to the public

Community Volunteer Projects

RKMGA has about 70 members and several projects throughout Racine and Kenosha counties. Some of our diverse range of volunteer opportunities includes creating and maintaining demonstration gardens, helping to maintain natural areas, providing greenery inside and outside of libraries, maintaining gardens at recreational and historic sites, maintaining vegetable gardens where the produce is provided to local food banks, providing educational interactive plant activities to school children, and sharing information at special events.

What else we do?

The Association meets monthly for a short business meeting followed by a gardening/horticulture presentation. Field trips are also offered by the Association. In addition to being part of the fun, becoming a member of RKMGA allows you to keep up to date with the latest developments in horticulture, continue your education, and participate in the state and international master gardener organizations, while helping the community.
