Garden Gate Learning Opportunities

The mission of Master Gardeners is to educate the public about gardening. As such we offer several opportunities to learn: monthly meetings, public seminars, demonstration garden classes and Advanced Training workshops (for Master Gardeners only).


Monthly Meeting Programs

Christian County Master Gardeners meet the fourth Monday of the month at the Central Bank of the Ozarks at the intersection of Highway 14 and Highway 160 in Nixa. The public is invited to attend our program at 6:30 p.m. Here's what we have planned for 2017 thus far:.

Jan. 22 - "Project Fair" - members learn about our different projects and sign up as volunteers.

Rest of year TBA
