Founded in 1866 by fruit growers in Minnesota, we took on the challenge of growing apples and other fruits in a northern climate. Today, we’re one of the longest-standing Horticultural Societies in the world, cultivating a healthy, diverse, sustainable community of northern gardeners. Driven by our vision of growing, together, we offer resources for anyone who wants to grow. Join a class, become a member, support our community outreach programs and grab a copy of our award-winning publication, Northern Gardener magazine. Dig in!
