Postponed until August 19-21, 2021

Given the current concerns about novel coronavirus, the 2020 Master Gardener College is being postponed. This was a difficult decision for MSU Extension to make, however our top priority is the health and wellbeing of our Extension Master Gardener volunteers and trainees, as well as vendors and speakers who make this event possible.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization and other agencies are currently recommending the public practice social distancing. Postponing the event is the most responsible course of action to mitigate any potential risks to participants and the friends and family with whom these individuals will come into contact.

Since MSU Extension is committed to providing hands-on experiential learning for Extension Master Gardeners through the Master Gardener College, the event will be postponed to August 19-21, 2021. Please be sure to save the dates on your calendar. The event will be held at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center in East Lansing, Mich.  

Thank you for your continued interest in the Extension Master Gardener program and for your support and understanding of our efforts to protect participant health. If you have any specific questions or concerns not addressed above, please do not hesitate to contact Betsy Braid at or 517-884-7081.
