Christian County Master Gardeners

Become a Master Gardener

Master Gardener training in Christian County is offered in the fall. Generally, an orientation session is offered in late September or early October with classes beginning shortly thereafter. Classes, which are typically offered in the evenings, are usually completed by Thanksgiving. You do not have to be a resident of the county where the training is being offered. If you are interested, call the Christian County Extension Center at 417-581-3558 to have your name placed on our mailing list. You will receive a registration form in the mail in late August with specifics about training such as cost, dates, location and requirements.
