About Us

Goodhue County Extension Master Gardeners are enthusiastic volunteers committed to providing research-based horticultural information and education to our Goodhue County communities.

We cultivate healthy people, healthy communities, and a healthy environment. Our members take pride in sharing their collective knowledge to inspire change by:

  • Answering lawn and garden questions
  • Teaching community education classes
  • Speaking to community groups and classrooms
  • Coordinating the design and maintenance of public gardens and greenspaces
  • Establishing local and state partnerships to identify and expand collaborative horticultural initiatives

We live to grow and grow to live!


If you have a lawn or garden question, we have a dedicated voicemail line at 651-385-3096. Leave a message there and an Extension Master Gardener will return your call.

  1. Not a master but love to play in the dirt. Looking for a local group with similar interests.I would love to learn more.

    1. Do you live near Red Wing Julie? You should consider becoming a Master Gardener or joining the Goodhue County Horticulture Society. There are also volunteers that help tend the Discovery Garden af Coville Park in Red Wing.

  2. I love the Covil park garden! I could look for hours, if I wasn’t interrupted my my daughter wanting me to play. I am in no way a master gardener but have started gaining knowledge and there’s always room to grow! Please let me know if you still meet up anywhere I live in Red Wing. Thank You, Emmy

    1. That is great Emily! The Discovery Garden really is a great place for families. Your timing is perfect as we are accepting applications for Goodhue County Master Gardeners until Ocotber 1. You can fill out an application online at z.umn.edu/mgapplication and will be notified in the fall if you are selected. Gaining knowledge is part of the program as the UMN offers online and in person (not sure if in person will happen during covid) training. Master Gardeners work together and volunteer on community projects – including the Discovery Garden! INTERESTED?

      Send your email to goodhuemgs@gmail.com and we can exchange phone numbers if you’d like to talk or have more questions.
