Haliburton County Master Gardeners
To the gardening community of all Haliburton County: Thank you for the overwhelming and generous reception to our Haliburton County Master Gardeners Plant Sale at its new venue last year (2019) in the Town of Haliburton. We hope to see all of you this year, same time, same place,  Saturday  June 6th, 10 am (entrance numbers available at 9 am).

We will be at the Kinmount Farmers Market on May 18th & June 22 and at the Haliburton Garlic Festival on Sunday August 25, 2019
held at Abbey Gardens as well as every meeting of the Minden & District Horticultural Association.

Here's all about who we are:

The group of Haliburton County Master Gardeners (HCMG) was founded in April 2002.  As our name suggests,

we serve Haliburton County and specialize in gardening in zone 4.  Our group is comprised of twelve Master Gardeners  

and Master Gardeners in Training.  To be a Master Gardener one must meet certain educational requirements 

set down by the overall organization - Master Gardeners of Ontario.

Our primary role is to advise gardeners and support gardening in Haliburton County. We give advice on a range of

topics from vegetable to flower gardens: at clinics in a variety of venues, as speakers, through our website, over the

telephone, by e-mail, on the radio, and through personal encounters. We hold an advice clinic at each of the Minden & District

Horticultural Society's monthly meetings. HCMGs have planned and implemented the community garden at Nature's Place in the

Minden Hills Cultural Centre. We redesigned the gardens at the Village Green in downtown Minden.

We garden with the Grade 3 students at Archie Stouffer Elementary School at the Minden Hills Museum.  

Each year the students' Three Sisters Garden (corn, beans & squash) yields produce for the local food bank.

Local gardening enthusiasts might know the HCMG best from their annual plant sale, held each spring and our CanoeFM radio

gardening tips. See below..

Our group meets on the second Tuesday of most months starting in March.

If you have any questions about gardening or would simply like to learn more about the Haliburton County 

Master Gardeners and what we do, please send an email to halmastergardener@gmail.com.
