What is MGANM?

The Master Gardener Association of Northwest Michigan (MGANM) is a chapter of the Michigan Master Gardener Association.    We are a group of Michigan State University Extension Master Gardeners, Master Gardener Trainees and Community Gardeners who love to learn and share our knowledge.  We promote the horticultural education activities of MSU Extension.

     Santa Rosa Labyrinth

                     Labyrinth Tour at the Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park

    A paved labyrinth is the newest addition to the Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park. To learn more about the historical aspects of a labyrinth, Master Gardeners are invited to attend an on-site Master Gardener Association of Northwest Michigan member only program July 6,  2021 at 6:30 p.m. 

    "Walking a labyrinth has a lot of physical and emotional healing benefits. It is made to clear your mind and melt your stress away," Karen Schmidt, Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park Board Chairperson said.

    All the plants, trees and herbs surrounding the labyrinth will be red at some point in the year.  Red was intentionally chosen to represent the red spires on the roof of the state hospital.

    The on-site program is free and open to members of MGANM. To register, go to MGANM.org by July 2, 2021. Attendance will be limited to the first 30 members who pre-register. Tours of the Botanic Garden will be available after the program. Members are encouraged to bring a beverage and an appetizer to share.  Social time will be at the Botanic Garden pavilion following the program.



Become a member

The Master Gardener Association of Northwest Michigan is open to all who want to learn.  We have three types of membership.  The first is Certified Extension Master Gardeners, people who have gone through the Master Gardener course with Michigan State Extension Services.  The second type is Community Gardener for those interested in horticulture and perhaps interested in becoming a Master Gardener (or were in the past), and Master Gardener Trainees.
