We invite you to attend MAMGA's Capstone Program for 2017, An Urban Gardening Symposium.  Attendance earns two hours of education credit.

We often hear the term "Urban Gardening" but do we really know what it means and the various types of gardening that it can involve? This 4 hour event includes a FREE breakfast and provides 2 hours of educational credit.
