Nominate that EMGV for the NCEMGVA Outstanding EMGV Award!
Is your group proud of your County Agent, County Director or other Extension personnel?
Do you rely on their leadership and support?
Nominate them for the NC State Extension Achievement Award to make your pride known!
Does your county have a great idea for a one-day or partial-day event to educate EMGVs and would like some funding to make it happen? Perhaps even collaborate with another county?
Apply for a NCEMGVA Educational Matching Grant! (formerly: Symposia Matching Grant)
Does your county have a specific type of garden they want to establish or expand but needs some financial help to get started? Or, perhaps your county wants to carry out an educational project for Junior Master Gardeners or for an after school program?
Apply for a NCEMGVA Project Grant (formerly: Competitive Grant) to make those plans a reality!
Does your county want to showcase a demonstration or educational garden that has been completed, is under construction, or is in the late design stage of planning? Entering the NCEMGVA Madeline Collier Landscape Garden Design Competition could win your group a cash prize!
