We accidentally sent out the last newsletter to only those MAMGA members whose membership had been renewed through the end of 2015. Now we have having some challenges in posting the newsletter to the website. Please send us an email through the Contact us link and we can forward a copy of January's newsletter. Check your membership status and renew if necessary so that you won't miss another issue.
New this year--a grant program for MAMGA members. See the December newsletter MAMGA Update and Grants for more information and application materials. Applications are due by mail to the MAMGA Post Office Box by February 25. Grant applicants will be notified by March 25.

Community garden leaders working with Dane Co. UW Extension have organized a program to build leadership skills and capacity for sustainable garden management. The summit is open to community garden leaders and volunteers, all who play a role in organizing and managing the garden. This conference will build on the introductory program on community gardens on February 21. The summit takes place at Christ Presbyterian Church, 944 E. Gorham Street in Madison.
Please RSVP for the Winter Summit using this Eventbrite page. A $10 donation is suggested to help cover meal costs, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Yes, life is busy, but we'd like to wrap up our 2015 membership drive so that we can send out the MAMGA membership cards. Please help us out by returning your two forms (renewal & volunteer interests) plus your check for $20 made out to MAMGA in our Post Office box. We'll send the $5 to WIMGA. We have an exciting year coming up so don't miss any of it.
If you have not received an email from MAMGA or you are unsure of your membership status, contact us at Info@mamgawi.org
Need to renew? The forms are at: 2015 Renewal and Volunteer forms.pdf
Please print single-sided copies because they are processed by two different people.
Complete the forms, include a check and mail to -
MAMGA, P.O. Box 259318, Madison WI 53725-9318.
Here's a quick summary of where your master gardener-related materials go:
MAMGA's Post Office Box gets membership renewals, checks made payable to MAMGA, volunteer interest sheets (printed on its own page, please), and the 2015 grant applications due January 31, 2015.
Dane Co/UW Extension gets the MGV Hours reports & certificates for completing the child abuse report training.
