MGANJ Goals:

  • Advise and assist RCE on Master Gardener issues of a statewide nature
  • Enhance and supplement the basic RCE Master Gardener Program by assisting in developing, planning and organizing educational activities
  • Assist county and local RCE Master Gardener programs by developing and exchanging information, communication, and resources throughout the state

The Master Gardeners Association of New Jersey (MGANJ), an organization made up of representatives from each of the county Master Gardener programs, meets at 10 a.m. on the first Tuesday of every month at the Extension Conference Center, 16 Ag Extension Way, G. H. Cook Campus, New Brunswick, unless otherwise noted.

The purpose of MGANJ is to unite Master Gardener programs in a statewide group that will assist Rutgers Cooperative Extension in its basic mission to disseminate research-based information to the general public. It also provides a forum for developing activities in support of Certified Master Gardeners/Educators or current Master Gardener Interns. MGANJ consists of representatives from all current programs and designated RCE faculty and staff. The MGANJ also coordinates and hosts the Annual Fall Master Gardener Conference, held in October on the campus of Rutgers University in New Brunswick.
