Smart Gardening


Smart Gardening is MSU Extension’s campaign using earth-friendly messages to help gardeners make smart choices in their own backyards. The goal is to equip gardeners with a “tool kit” of research-based knowledge to use immediately at home. Whether choosing plants, using garden chemicals, fertilizer or applying water, gardeners need to understand the long-term impacts on their communities.

These videos and tip sheets are a quick reference for Extension Master Gardeners and home gardeners alike. Visit our Events page to find workshops and classes.
