Highlighted Volunteer Projects:
The AMGA has been planning and maintaining the gardens at the Anchorage Pioneer Home for over 20 years. The gardens are truly appreciated by all that see them and bring joy to the residents of the home. You can help by becoming a Pioneer Home Volunteer!
AMGA volunteers plant, water, weed and clean out the gardens every summer. Early in June, a work group of 10-15 people plant the gardens. During the summer, basic garden maintenance is done by teams of Master Gardeners each week, averaging about 4 hours per person. In the fall it's clean out time for the work group. Along the way you will hear plenty of compliments on the gardens and how they affect the lives of the people that view them.

AMGA also has a long history of helping the Alaska Botanical Garden. Volunteers staff an “Ask a Master Gardener” information desk in the summer and also help maintain the Herb Garden.
