The MG Program Management Guide is a resource for new and seasoned Master Gardener Programs.  Included in guide is information on MG policies, program structure, training information and project guidelines.  It is a good idea to print these guidelines and keep in your county office.  As new policies are formed, they are updated on this page. Below are the various sections of the Arkansas Master Gardener Program Management Guide.                          A drawing of a shade tree with the words Master Gardener and U of A Division of Agriculture Research and Extension underneath the tree
