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!

December 4, 2014

In keeping with our annual tradition, MGWWC will once again host a Holiday Pot Luck and Toy Drive on our last General Membership meeting for the year.  MGWWC will supply the ham, beverages, paper and plastic wear. Members are asked to bring a favorite dish to pass.

MGWWC will also collect unwrapped toys and other donation items for the kids at Redford's Methodist Children's Home
. To find out more about the Home and to view Wish Lists, please visit:
