Master Gardeners

Welcome to the Pulaski County Master Gardener website! The Missouri Master Gardener Program is a volunteer development program offered by Missouri University. Master Gardener volunteers are highly trained and provide proven, research-based educational programs to Missouri residents. We are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. They are enthusiastic, willing to learn and help others, and able to communicate with diverse groups of people.

Any resident with an interest in horticulture and a desire to volunteer for community service may apply to the Master Gardener Training Program. 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 in approved University of Missouri Extension activities.  Upon completion of the 30 hours of volunteer service, each volunteer. Master Gardeners moving from other states are evaluated on a case-by-case basis through discussion with the individual, local coordinator, and State Coordinator. Master Gardener Brochure

At the heart of the Missouri Master Gardener program is our volunteers. Volunteers assist the University of Missouri Extension Service personnel extend the educational arm of the university to the public by providing horticultural information based on university research and recommendations.

In other words, the Missouri Master Gardener program is a place for volunteers to have a fun, educational experience while serving the community in which they live while doing what they love.
