St. Louis Master Gardeners at work

Nathan Brandt and the St. Louis Master Gardeners were hard at work beautifying the grounds at the Kathy J. Weinman Shelter. The volunteers are transforming the space to provide some comfort for the women and children residing within the facility. This is one example of the partnership MU Extension has with St. Louis County. This began with a phone call requesting help with a flower bed. Do you have community horticulture project that you would like help with? Give Nathan a call: 314-400-7338!
