Are you interested in becoming a MU Extension Master Gardener? The Master Gardener volunteer program began in the early 1970’s in response to the rapidly increasing interest in home gardening. The idea was to train knowledgeable garden volunteers to help University Extension personal deliver home gardening information to the public. The idea worked! 

Today, the Master Gardener volunteer program is recognized nationally as a means for individuals to learn and to share horticultural knowledge with others. A successful candidate for the program is anyone able and willing to donate volunteer hours in the communities and/or MU Extension educational programs in Hickory County. After completing the course all first-year Master Gardeners must volunteer for 30 hours work. Master Gardeners develop their gardening and community potential while helping others in the community. Master Gardeners serve as representatives of the University of Missouri Extension. They may engage in a variety of interesting education activities that benefit the community as well. 

This is a ten session course offered over several weeks with different topics pre-selected by the Master Gardening State issued curriculum.  You must take at least eight of the ten session to meet the criteria of the Master Gardener Program. Sessions are held Tuesday nights.

This course may be taken in its entirety or you may select only the classes you want to at a reduced rate.
