Join the Western Massachusetts Master Gardeners in celebrating our 19th year of early Spring fun by attending our annual Spring Garden Symposia.

There are workshops for the novice gardener as well as the more experienced. We will have speakers on a myriad of subjects providing practical gardening advice on berries, vegetables (including heirlooms) and herbs. Once you have successfully grown and harvested your food you will need to preserve it. We can show how to do that as well!

We will offer programs at three different locations this year, with different workshops at each (so you may wish to attend more than one!)  Select a location and click on the blocks below to view that locations offerings and download a registration form.

For those who would rather look at garden plants than eat them, we have workshops on garden design, container gardens, rock gardens,  water gardening, and entire workshops dedicated to some of the belles of the garden: daylilies, roses, ferns, and ornamental grasses.  There are workshops on native plants, organic gardening, improving your soil, attracting wildlife you would like to share your garden with and controlling those pests you want to exclude.  For the more adventurous there are workshops for creating garden ornaments with hypertufa, and making your own garden trellis.  We will also have book sales and raffles of garden-related items, as well as vendors with gardening items for sale.

Spend a day with hundreds of fellow winter-crazed gardeners and share the fun! 
We look forward to seeing you.
