About

Tillamook County Master Gardener Association

Our Mission

Tillamook County Master Gardener Association (TCMGA) is committed to offering educational opportunities to area residents on sustainable gardening principles and research-based horticultural practices in conformance with the Oregon State University (OSU) Master Gardener Program™.

The goal of Tillamook Master Gardeners is simple: they love gardening and they love solving problems.

The Oregon State University Master Gardener™ Program is an Oregon State University (OSU) Extension Service program that educates Oregonians about the art and science of growing and caring for plants. This program also facilitates the training of a highly educated corp of volunteers. These volunteers extend sustainable gardening information to their communities through education and outreach programs.

Master Gardeners are trained volunteers, educated through OSU Extension Service to offer the local community ReliableRelevant and Reachable gardening information and education opportunities.

Reliable: our gardening advice and education is science-based.
Relevant: customized information for your gardening situation.
Reachable: Call us on the phone, email us a question, or visit with us at markets or gardens in your community.

Master Gardeners are people like you, interested in learning more about the art and science of growing and caring for plants in the garden, the landscape, and the home. In exchange for classroom instruction, Master Gardeners agree to help local Extension faculty and staff extend horticultural information to people in their communities.
