The MU Extension Missouri Master Gardener program is “helping others learn to grow.” The Master Gardener program provides in-depth horticultural training to individuals throughout Missouri who then volunteer their time applying what they have learned to help others in their communities learn about gardening and the environment. Through activities such as workshops, demonstration projects, speaker’s bureaus and garden show booths, Master Gardeners provide gardening information to thousands of Missourians each year.
