I love the discounts with the member card. I like to keep track of what that is saving me. I think it pretty much pays for the yearly membership.

You can get other magazines and learn about plants that only last five minutes here. I like that the magazine is practical and local.

Lollie, Golden Valley

Thank you for the fantastic talk on spring garden planning. You had so much information and direction—we loved it. You covered it all: rotation, companions, successions, placement of plants for weed and insect control and use of cover crops.

Prudy, Olmsted County Master Gardeners

Yes, yes, yes! I do want my membership renewed. I so love the magazine and, as a master gardener involved with community gardens, I appreciate the MN Green program!

Doris, Minneapolis

Being in a northern climate, it’s nice to have things specific to my growing zone. I love taking tours of other people’s gardens as we do this through the magazine and see what others are doing. I like the environmental information. You guys have a finger on the pulse what's going on with our planet.
