Johnson County Extension Master Gardeners
The Extension Master Gardeners of Johnson County Missouri are trained individuals who enjoy learning and sharing their expertise with others. Our gardening backgrounds range from hobbyist to professional, from beginner to expert, from young adult to senior citizen. The common bond is a love of gardening, learning, and sharing.
We are involved in a diverse collection of community projects and one-on-one consultations, such as:
- Johnson County Historical Courthouse Square, Warrensburg
- Community Rose Garden, Warrensburg
- Lions Lake Micro Garden, Warrensburg
- Vest Drive Garden, Warrensburg
- Highway 50/Business 50 intersection garden, Warrensburg
- Powell Gardens, Kingsville
- Monthly gardening articles in the Warrensburg Daily Star Journal
- Personal gardening consultations
- Gardening presentations to organizations
- Youth and senior citizen gardening projects.
To become an Extension Master Gardener, call the Johnson County Extension Office at 660-747-3193 for details on upcoming training.
At the heart of the Extension Master Gardener program is our volunteers. Volunteers assist the University of Missouri Extension Service personnel to extend the educational arm of the university to the public by providing horticultural information based on university research and recommendations.
In other words, the Extension 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.
Come and join us!
We meet at 6:00 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month (exceptions: third Thursday in November and no meeting in December) at the Grover Park Baptist Church Family Life Center, 405 N. Mitchell, Warrensburg. The meeting is open to all Extension Master Gardeners. Meetings usually adjourn around 8:30 p.m. Please contact the Extension office about information on joining.
