Master Gardener Registration

Master Gardener Course Offered in Lake Ozark

 

Do you want to know more about gardening?  Would you like to share that knowledge with others?  Consider enrolling in the spring 2018 University of Missouri Extension Master Gardener Course held in the Lake of the Ozarks Area.  You will receive 30 hours of instruction in soils, composting, insects, disease prevention, plant growth, flowers, woody ornamentals, turf, vegetables, fruits, native plants, herbs, and landscaping.  Classes are taught by University of Missouri state and regional specialists and Master Gardeners themselves. More information about the Missouri Master Gardener Program can be found on the web at www.mg.missouri.edu.

 

Master Gardeners volunteer 30 hours of community gardening or horticultural expertise to assist the University in carrying out the mission of "Helping Others Learn to Grow.”  In return, the course has a minimal fee.  This is a wonderful opportunity for persons interested in horticulture and gardening to learn new skills, share ideas, work together on projects, and help their neighbors.

 

Orientation for the course will be held on Monday, February 26th, 2018.  During this class, materials are handed out and the program will be explained. 

 

The gardening topics are during sessions held from February 26th  through May 21st, 2018. The sessions are scheduled on Monday afternoons.  They begin at 1:00 pm and will last approximately three hours each.  Classes are held at the Lake Ozark Fire Department Meeting room at 1767 Bagnell Dam Blvd, Lake Ozark, MO 65049.
