of Burke County Welcome You!
The Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Association (EMGVA) of Burke County, North Carolina, is a non-profit educational service organization of trained volunteers who provide sound, research-based horticultural information to the community. Our organization is comprised of Burke County residents who are certified Master Gardeners having had the benefit of instruction and training on an array of horticultural topics by acknowledged experts. Our mission is to support Burke County Extension horticulture and education outreach programs with our volunteer activities. Keeping that in mind, Burke Extension Master Gardeners plan our programs and seek out projects where, utilizing our training and skills, we can have the most immediate impact in the community.
