    Earth Day Ice Cream Cone Flowers (Session 1 of 2)

    When:  Monday, April 22, 2019, 8 a.m. to noon

    Description:

    Participants had an up close and in person opportunity to see and touch different variations of flower seeds. Participants planted flowers in ice cream cones by putting soil and flower seeds in the cone. Participants then take the cone home, dig a hole and put the whole thing in the ground. When they water the flower seeds the cone disolves into the ground. Participants were given 4-H information to take home with them.

    Missouri 4-H is about young people discovering their interests with the guidance of caring adults. It’s about young people making friends and memories in clubs or other groups while honing their knowledge, skills, attitudes and health to lead in a complex and changing world.

    The mission of the Missouri Master Gardener Extension Program is “helping others learn to grow.” The Master Gardener program provides in depth horticultural training to individuals throughout Missouri who then volunteer their time applying what they have learned to help others in their communities to learn about gardening and environmental education. The Master Gardener Program throughout Missouri promotes and raises public awareness of the University of Missouri Extension as a source of unbiased, research based gardening information.

    Through activities such as Extension hotlines or answer services, workshops, speaker’s bureaus, garden show booths and demonstration projects, Master Gardeners provide gardening information to thousands of Missourians each year.

    To become trained as a Master Gardener, an individual must attend a 30 hour classroom Core Course training. Then the Master Gardener trainee is required to give 30 hours of volunteer service back to their community in approved University of Missouri Extension activities.
