You’ve come to the right place to learn more about Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners in our community!  We’re the Central Shenandoah Valley Master Gardeners Association, and we serve communities throughout Augusta County and Rockingham County, including the cities of Harrisonburg and Staunton.
The CSVMGA is a diverse group of volunteers who enjoy learning and sharing information about best gardening and conservation practices, and we have a great time doing it!
