In order to recognize Master Gardener volunteer efforts of significance in supporting the Master Gardener Mission of giving back to the community, the St Charles Master Gardener organization has implemented a recognition program in September 2012, to honor individual Master Gardeners.

The Awards will be presented annually, beginning in 2013, at the January general meeting based upon reported volunteer hours for the previous calendar year.
