MGTV_logo_color2Welcome to Master Gardeners of the Tanana Valley! We are located in Fairbanks, Alaska, the “Golden Heart” of Alaska’s Interior. Here, many people grow everything from potatoes and carrots to greens, fruit, and even corn.

We offer activities for new and experienced gardeners, from classes and workshops to garden tours and guest speakers.

We’d love to teach you how fun and productive it is to garden in Alaska’s Interior during our relatively short—but intense—growing season. Join us and learn how to:

  • Choose the plant varieties that grow best in our northern soils
  • Improve your soil for better crop yields
  • Deal with common garden pests
  • Extend the growing season with row covers, greenhouses, and other strategies
  • And much more

  1. The link to download your membership form is broken😦
    Can you just put on your front webpage the amount of membership? It’s just as easy that way.


    • Hi Deborah – I just now saw your comment; for some reason the blog isn’t sending out the messages. I checked the membership form – both the online one and the Word document, and they both seem to be working. The amounts of membership are also listed on the web site under “Join.” I hope that helps!
