Green Thumb Tuesday Lunch - June 2
Green Thumb Tuesday -- Different location this month!
An informal get-together for MAMGA members
Location: Oakwood Village University Woods Nature Preserve, 6205 Mineral Point Road.
Topic: Oakwood Village Nature Preserve
Guided tour of the Nature Preserve and other garden spaces. Lunch and tour hosted by Oakwood. Reservations are required this month. Call or email Dana Warren.
All MGVs (and students) are invited!
REAP Food Group and Community GroundWorks are teaming up with MMSD Food and Nutrition to build a garden at the MMSD Food Production Facility on Pflaum Road. Volunteers are needed to help build raised beds and fill them with compost on May 21, and to plant transplants into the new raised beds on May 28. Activities will take place in the afternoon, but exact times are yet to be determined. Please contact Natasha at email@example.com if you would like more information.
On Saturday June 13, stop by the Teaching Garden starting at 9am to help weed, water, and mulch the site. You provide the labor and MAMGA will provide the lunch. To help us estimate the amount of food needed, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 8 if you plan to have lunch. Stay for any time that fits your schedule.

Now that the growing season has begun, be sure to record your volunteer hours spent in activities, education, working with kids, and continuing education. Use Word and the fillable form.
Here's a quick summary of where your master gardener-related materials go:
MAMGA's Post Office Box 259318 gets:
- annual meeting reservations ($20 members, $25 guests, checks made payable to MAMGA) due March 14;
- 2016 membership renewal due November 15. Make renewal checks out to MAMGA for $20 which includes a $5 WIMGA membership.
You can join MAMGA once you have completed master gardener training successfully. Students in Dane County's master gardener program are MAMGA members. If your certification lapses for a year or more, you can still join MAMGA. We can provide advice and opportunities to re-certify. We strongly encourage maintaining certification and we help by making it easy-to-do.
Think: Money = MAMGA!

Dane Co/UW Extension 5201 Fen Oak Court gets the MGV Hours reports due October 1 each year. The report is used to determine certification as a master gardener for the following year. Certification cards are sent out in late winter.
Think: Certification hours = Dane Co/Extension!
Sending materials to the wrong location will delay processing.
