Upcoming Programs

Springtime in the Garden

Master Gardeners of the Ozarks will be holding their annual plant sale on Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Main Street in Forsyth.  Perennials, natives, herbs, ground covers, tropical and much more will be available.  All plants are grown and donated by the Master Gardeners and are offered at very reasonable prices.  Need help planning a garden?  Volunteers will be on hand to assist with your selections.  They will also have an informational table called "Ask a Master Gardener".  Back again this year are the popular "pollinator boxes".  These plants are selected to benefit butterflies and bees.  They feature host and nectar plants, and include a planting guide to get you started.  The Missouri Department of Conservation will have 200 free trees for attendees.  New this year will be a Children's Garden, which will feature activities and plants for the children to take home with them.  For more information see the attached flyer or contact the Taney County MU Extension center at 417-546-4431 or taneyco@missouri.edu.
