Master Gardeners – with distinction


Master Gardeners – with distinction

13 of our April 2013 cohort of MGs have been awarded the status of Master Gardener with Distiction.

They’ve successfully supported communities to grow their own food, and met, or substantially gone towards meeting the 12 month targets of:

  • supporting five households or groups
  • done 30 hours volunteering
  • had 50 food growing conversations in the wider community (at events or at the bus stop, with colleagues…)

And more than that, they are a super bunch who delight in supporting newbie growers and sharing the joy of germination.

In the view of the Master Gardener programme team at Garden Organic, these Master Gardeners have demonstrated sustained enthusiasm and commitment towards achieving every element of the volunteer role as outlined in section 2.4 of their manuals.
