Interested in becoming a Master Gardener?

First annual Young Sprouts in the Park a big success
Waynesville, Mo. (May 19, 2014) — On Saturday, May 17, over 400 patrons stopped by the Waynesville Park to check out Young Sprouts. They had no idea they would leave with their arms full of plants, bird feeders, posters and nature crafts. There were 23 different activity hosts, some of them with multiple activities for the children. All smiles everywhere that day as families mingled throughout the park to experience nature and all things related. Each child was also entered into a drawing for door prizes, Cardinals tickets and all concessions were free. After hearing many positive comments from many parents, the Pulaski County Master Gardeners and Armed Services YMCA are excited to do it again next year! Thank you to all who came out to enjoy and support the event.
