Strafford County Master Gardeners Association is one of ten Master Gardener groups in the State of New Hampshire, working under the auspices of the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension. Our members work on a variety of county gardening projects.

Under the guidance of the Strafford County Cooperative Extension Staff, we strive to assist our neighbors by providing education and support for a variety of gardening topics. This blog is intended as a means to enhance communication with our fellow gardeners.

If you are a New Hampshire resident with gardening questions, here is a link to contact the UNH Cooperative Extension Education Center and Information Line staffed by NH Master Gardeners for all of your gardening questions. Or if you have been thinking about becoming a Master Gardener, here’s a link to provide further information about the program.

If you have a question for SCMGA,  feel free to contact us because gardening is our favorite topic.
