Extension Master Gardener Training

Master Gardeners are adults of all ages who love gardening and are interested in lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers, gardens and the environment. The Northwest Missouri Master Gardeners are known locally for their annual plant sale, their yearly donation of nearly a ton of produce to local food banks, and their annual Tomato Fest! highlighting the more than 100 varieties of tomatoes grown on site. That is just the beginning of what this group is doing in and around St. Joseph.

If you are interested in becoming a Master Gardener, contact the Buchanan County Extension office, 816-279-1691.
