The 2019 Board of the SFMGA would like to share with all members, the public and friends of the SFEMG and SFMGA organizations, a brief review of 2019. The 2019 year represented the first year of the Santa Fe Master Gardeners separation into two distinct organizations as a result of changes at NMSU. The Santa Fe Extension Master Gardeners (SFEMG.org) is now the day-to-day organization under the NMSU extension office and handles all the projects, Master Gardener training, and all other related Extension Master Gardener initiatives. The Santa Fe Master Gardeners Association (SFMGA.org), the former legacy organization, is currently providing additional funding support to the SFEMG as a 501c3. [see the earlier Q&A posting on the SFMGA.org website for more detail]
As such, we are pleased to report that in 2019 the following funding support was made to the SFEMG for ongoing and new initiatives:
