North Fulton Master Gardeners, Inc. is a Georgia nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose purpose is to educate its members and the public in the areas of horticulture and ecology in order to promote and foster community enrichment. NFMG assists The University of Georgia Extension by providing unbiased horticultural information to Georgians through volunteer community service and educational gardening projects using applied research and the resources of The University of Georgia. NFMG Volunteers are trained and certified by The University of Georgia Cooperative Extension.

Over the years, the North Fulton Master Gardeners have provided gardening community education classes in Alpharetta, Roswell, Sandy Springs, and Farm Chastain (now transitioned to a virtual learning format due to the pandemic); gardening education for young children; university and college scholarships for horticulture students; local demonstration gardens maintained by the North Fulton Master Gardeners; and Garden Faire, which is returning April 30, 2022 to a new venue at Autrey Mill Nature Preserve in Johns Creek.

In response to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the North Fulton Master Gardeners went virtual with our pre-recorded Fall 2020 Gardening Lecture Series. The 2021 David Gibby International Master Gardener Search for Excellence (IMGSFE) Awards have recognized the North Fulton Master Gardeners for our efforts in the face of a global pandemic in successfully providing horticultural education to the North Fulton community and beyond through virtual webinar technology. The First Place Award (https://wp.imgcsfe.com/#1st-place) in the Workshops/Presentations Category was made on September 15, 2021, during the virtual International Master Gardener Conference.

North Fulton Master Gardeners are also available to speak at your next virtual meeting or event on a multitude of topics. To request a speaker, contact Speakers Bureau Chair Ian Matthes at 404-499-4111 or email speakers at nfmg.net.
