Master Gardener Classes

Master Gardener training classes are held each spring.  The classes are held from 6pm - 9 pm on Thursday evening with approximately 11-12 sessions. The current cost for Master Gardener training is $110 per person, or $195 per couple. Master Gardeners are adults of all ages who love gardening and who have some previous gardening experience. They are members of the local community who are interested in lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers, gardens, and the environment.  If you are interested in becoming a Master Gardener in the future, you can complete the form (PDF) requesting further information or contact Maranda at Buchanan County Extension office, 816-279-1691.
