Welcome

 Haliburton County Master Gardeners
Our 2018 Plant Sale will be held on Saturday June 2 at 10:00 a.m. in the Village Green in downtown Minden. (Arrive at 9 am to get an entry number and browse the plants while we set up. The sale ends at noon or when we are sold out.)


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 at the 

Village Green in Minden. Our group meets on the second Tuesday of most months.


If you have an 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.
