Through their trained volunteers, the Extension Master Gardener (EMG) Program seeks to preserve and beautify the environment while improving the quality of life in the community. Toward that goal, the EMG Program provides current research-based horticultural information to the public through education and outreach. The EMG Program promotes horticultural best management practices, sustainability, and environmental initiatives as developed by NMSU’s Cooperative Extension Service (CES) and the agricultural research programs of NMSU.

The purpose of the Master Gardener Program is to train volunteers to be effective community educators in horticulture and environmental stewardship by providing to the public science-based information generated from research at NMSU and other university systems.
