Master Gardeners of Western Wayne County (MGWWC)  is a non-profit Michigan State University Extension (MSUE) associated volunteer organization dedicated to educating our local communities about gardening and horticulture using research-based information. We are here to come together to improve our Community, grow as individuals, learn from each other and have lots of FUN in the process!


MGWWC Membership Meeting


Speaker: Joy Jacobs

Topic: How I Began Gardening with Native Plants


Joy is a Hardware Engineer that recently changed back to Software Engineering to work on Autonomous vehicles.

Joy and her spouse bought their home in Sept. 2008, and it was the "Money Pit" personified.  Joy calls her home, "the house in the woods in the suburbs" as one could drive by and not see it.  She tried the typical homeowner ornamental plants with failure.  Then set out to learn about and plant native plants and has transformed their garden.
