Minnesota Turf and Grounds Foundation

MTGF CLIPPINGS is a printed magazine and a practical way to reach out to more than 2,300 green

The allied associations are the Minnesota Golf Course Superintendents’ Association; Minnesota Park and Sports Turf ManagersAssociation; Minnesota Society of Arboriculture; Minnesota Educational Facililty Management Professionals; Minnesota Association of Cemeteries; Minnesota Turf Seed Council, and the Minnesota Sod Producers. As a commercial member of one or more of our allied associations you also are considered a member of the Minnesota Turf and Grounds Foundation at no extra cost and have the opportunity to advertise in the MTGF CLIPPINGS magazine. Once a year in January, the MTGF partners with the Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association (MNLA) to host the Northern Green at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The MTGF funds created from the Northern Green are earmarked for Minnesota turf and grounds research primarily at the University of Minnesota. The mission of the MTGF is to promote the green industry in Minnesota through support of research, education and outreach at the University of Minnesota and elsewhere. 

MTGF CLIPPINGS is mailed directly to: Golf Course Superintendents and Staffs; Facility Management Professionals; Sports Turf Managers; Arborists; Park Supervisors; Turf, Seed and Sod Professionals; Landscapers, along with Master Gardeners and Garden Centers. Please support the efforts of the Minnesota Turf and Grounds Foundation by promoting your company by advertising in one or both of our 2020 printed issues of MTGF CLIPPINGS. Besides providing focused marketing for your company, you will help the MTGF promote research through our magazine for the betterment of the Green Industry in general and Minnesota in particular. The Spring/Summer Issue of MTGF CLIPPINGS, published in May, is a way to promote your company as the outdoor season kicks in to gear. The Fall/Winter issue is an opportunity to promote your company before the 2021 Northern Green.
