Master Gardeners of Johnson County

The Master Gardeners of Johnson County Missouri are trained individuals who enjoy learning and sharing their expertise with others. Our gardening backgrounds range from hobbyist to professional, from beginner to expert, from young adult to senior citizen. The common bond is a love of gardening, learning and sharing.

We are involved in a diverse collection of community projects and one-on-one consultations such as

  • Johnson County Historical Courthouse Square, Warrensburg
  • Blind Boone Park, Warrensburg
  • Community Rose Garden, Warrensburg
  • Lions Lake Micro Garden, Warrensburg
  • Vest Drive Garden, Warrensburg
  • Highway 50/Business 50 intersection garden, Warrensburg
  • Trails Regional Library planters, Warrensburg
  • Turkey Foot Prairie, Warrensburg
  • Powell Gardens, Kingsville
  • Ronald McDonald House, Kansas City, MO
  • Monthly gardening articles in the Warrensburg Daily Star Journal
  • Personal gardening consultations
  • Gardening presentations to organizations
  • Youth and senior citizen gardening projects

After training, Master Gardeners serve as a resource with University of Missouri Extension to give county residents research-based answers to their gardening questions. The primary purpose of a Master Gardener is to volunteer, but members rate camaraderie and learning opportunities as important reasons for participating.

To become a Master Gardener, call the Johnson County Extension Office at 660-747-3193 for details on upcoming training.
