About Christian County Master Gardeners
Welcome to Christian County Master Gardeners! We hope this website will give you useful information about our chapter and that you will choose to become a Master Gardener and/or attend our free Garden Gate presentations, classes and seminars. We also encourage you to attend our annual plant sale, May 7, at the Nixa Meeting Event Center in Nixa, 8-11 a.m.
As part of the Master Gardener program in Missouri, we promote and raise public awareness of the University of Missouri Extension as a source of unbiased, research-based gardening information. The master Gardener program provides indepth horticultural training to individuals throughout Missouri who then volunteer their time and apply what they have learned to help others learn about gardening and environmental education.

- Deliver educational programs to the public through our Garden Gate series of OC garden classes, public seminars, Advanced Training for Master Gardeners only and monthly programs open to the public
