CCMG Newsletters

The Master Gardener newsletter began as a project for several members of the fall 1989 Master Gardener Class with Vol. 1, No.1 dated December 1989. It has been published every month since that time. Over the years, many Master Gardeners and guest writers have written timely articles for the newsletter. There are over 1500 subscribers to the free newsletter each month - many in other states and even a few in foreign countries.

If you would like to receive notification when the monthly newsletter is posted please subscribe to the newsletter notification list. This is a two-step process: after the form is completed you will receive an email with further details on subscribing. If you would prefer to receive a hardcopy of the newsletter mailed to you please send an email to:
