The Master Gardener volunteer program began in the early 1970’s in response to the rapidly increasing interest in home gardening. The idea was to train knowledgeable garden volunteers to help University Extension staff deliver home gardening information to the public. The idea worked! Today, the Master Gardener volunteer program is recognized nationally as a means for individuals to learn and to share horticultural knowledge with others. Our course consists of eleven, 3-hour sessions covering the following topics: Understanding Soil and Plant Nutrition Plant Growth and Development Annual / Floral and Vegetable Production Perennial Gardening (Trees, Shrubs, and Perennial plants) Raised Bed and Container Grown Gardening Insect and/or Integrated Pest Management Fruit Trees, Bramble Berries, and Grape Production Lawn and Turf Management Plant Diagnostics and Disease Control Greenhouses and High Tunnels Raised Beds and Container Grown Gardening Courses will be conducted by MU Extension Specialists and other professionals.

Session topic:

Understanding Soil and Plant Nutrition: Selecting your gardening spot, building your soil, composting, & preparing your soil for maximum production.
