Since 1997 the University of Missouri Extension has trained volunteers for the Missouri Master Gardener program. After completing the Core Course, Master Gardeners advise and train communities on gardening and environmental horticulture, and participate in various educational service projects. The Master Gardener program is instrumental in building strong communities in our region.
Participants will become certified as Master Gardeners after taking the 30-plus hour training course and fulfilling the first year’s 30 hour garden education related volunteer requirement. Every subsequent year, certification is maintained through the completion of at least 20 hours of volunteer time on projects and taking an additional 6 hours of continued horticultural education.
Anyone interested in becoming a Missouri Master Gardener can apply to take the fall 2013 core course. The course will begin with an orientation on Thursday, August 22 at the Pulaski County Courthouse 301 Historic 66 East, Waynesville, MO 65583. Some refreshments will be provided.
