The Macon Shelby Master Gardeners are a group of dedicated volunteers who give back to their communities through educational programs on gardening and community projects. Master Gardeners provide unbiased horticultural information and education to the public based on proven research, specific to the climate, soil and other growing conditions of our county.
To become trained as a Master Gardener, individuals must attend the 30-hour classroom core training and agree to provide 30 hours of volunteer service to their community. Then Master Gardener trainees are required to give 30 hours of volunteer service back to their community in approved University of Missouri Extension activities. Watch the calendar for upcoming training dates.
