MCMG Email Groups

Montgomery County Master Gardeners maintains two main email groups and several subgroups. Our two main email groups are:

MG Business Groups IO

  • Purpose: The intention of MG Business Groups IO (mcmg@groups.io) is to communicate info that benefits/impacts the entire group and that is related to our organization, not just specific individuals or small groups. 
  • Examples of items that would be appropriate would be information regarding MG meetings, announcements, volunteer opportunities and communications, scheduled events (including gardening related webinars, classes and lectures), plant sales (remember we do not endorse any company holding an event), and job openings for garden related employment. Basically, does this communication benefit or impact the entire organization? If it does then please post it on the MG Business Groups IO!
  • MG Business Groups IO (mcmg) contact: Katie McIe

MG Social Groups IO (a.k.a., Gardeners Connected)

  • Purpose: The intention of Gardeners Connected is to communicate things that are of a more personal/social nature.
  • Examples of items that would be appropriate would be comments on books, articles, cooking recipes, personal gardening experiences, items for giveaway or swapping, requesting plant identification, insect and disease that benefits one's self. As long as it is done in a respectful manner there really are no prohibitions on what can be discussed on Gardeners Connected. So chat away!
  • MG Social Groups IO (a.k.a. Gardeners Connected) contact: Carol Kosary.  To request MG Social Groups IO membership or access this group, please click this link.

Most Master Gardeners in Montgomery County belong to the main Business Group and Social Group that serves our entire organization. Once you join this Email group, you will be able to send an email to the group which will be distributed automatically to all Montgomery County Master Gardeners who are members. You in turn will receive email sent by your fellow Master Gardeners.

To send a message to the MCMG Business Group email list (the main MCMG membership email group), type mcmg@groups.io in the To: field of your email message.  You must be a member of the mcmg group list to send a message to this list.

To send a message to the MG Social Groups IO (a.k.a., Gardeners Connected), type mcmg@gardeners-connected.groups.io in the To: field of your email message, or click 'New Topic' which is in the list on the lefthand side of the messages page in groups.io.  You must be a member of the Gardeners Connected group list to send a message to this list.
