MCMGA offers a variety of interesting workshops and events to help home gardeners gain new research-based knowledge and skills. You may have already sampled one or more of our nearly year-‘round fruit workshops, dealing with cane or blueberries, grapes and tree fruits, as well as the ever-popular rose pruning events.

In 2020, we are expanding our offerings. Spring and summer sessions are planned to deal with several aspects of growing vegetables and herbs, coping with garden pests, small-space gardens and seasonal topics such as cover cropping. We will provide information as workshop details, including date, instructor and venue are finalized.

Check the Event Registration page, regularly.  You will normally find the signup list posted there six to eight weeks before the class or workshop date. Thank you for your interest!

Programs are free and open to the public, unless otherwise specified. Pre-registration is required. Just follow the directions for registration on the description of the workshop.

Most workshops are held at the Marion Demonstration Garden located at 3180 Center St. in Salem. Some workshops are held at other sites in the community or at the Marion County Health and Services building.

If you or a family member will need accommodations for a disability to participate in one or more of our programs, please contact Mark Chien at 503-373- 3775, two weeks prior to the scheduled program.
