Members of the Society are Master Gardeners certified by Michigan State University.

Due to several circumstances, the Board of Directors has decided to have the next LIVE Education Conference in 2024. We always want to ensure that we bring you the finest “Gardening and All That Jazz” conference, and due to the rise in Covid again and other factors, we are moving our next conference out to 2024.

The date and location is yet to be determined.
