Master Gardener Training - Adair Co/NE and Mid-Missouri


The Master Gardener program trains individuals in the science and art of gardening. Graduates become volunteers who advise and educate the public on gardening and horticulture. Local Master Gardener chapters provide ongoing education, organize gardening activities for the public good, conduct research, and many other types of projects.

This offering will have two cohorts, one in mid-Missouri (Boone, Cole, and surrounding counties) and one in the Kirksville/Adair County area. You will choose a cohort in the registration, and may select any cohort that is convenient for you.

For this offering, the primary course content will be delivered online (via Zoom) on Wednesday mornings, 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. "How to" instructions and tips for using Zoom will be provided by email prior to the first class.

In-person lab sessions will illustrate what was covered during the Wednesday classes through tours, demonstrations, and hands-on activities all held in the local cohort vicinity.
