The Master Gardener program provides in depth horticultural training to individuals throughout Missouri. Those trained through the program volunteer their time applying what they have learned to help others in their communities to learn about gardening. To become trained as a Master Gardener, an individual must attend a 30 hour Core Course Training. Then the Master Gardener trainee is required to give 30 hours of volunteer service back in approved University of Missouri Extension activities. A large percentage of volunteer hours is dedicated to providing assistance with the heavy workload of horticulture questions in county Extension offices. Through activities such as Extension hot lines, workshops, speakers bureaus, garden show booths and demonstration projects, Master Gardeners provide gardening information to thousands of Missourians each year.
This session includes an orientation to the course.
Contact the Jasper County Extension Center for an application and registration information.
Ozark Gateway Master Gardeners are providing scholarships to pay part of the fee. See application for details.
