Master Gardener Training in Jackson, MO - Cancelled


As we monitor the ongoing national response to the spread of COVID-19 and keep public health top of mind, we have decided to cancel this event.  We hope to reschedule soon

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 to learn about gardening and environmental education. To become trained as a Master Gardener, an individual must complete a 30 hour core training course. Then the Master Gardener trainee is required to give 30 hours of volunteer service back to the community in approved MU Extension activities. 

Course Objectives:
* To understand the mission of the Missouri Master Gardener Program and how it functions.
* To acquire a working knowledge of the fundamental principles of plant growth and development.
* To apply concepts of plant growth and development to everyday situations and uses in horticulture.
* To learn basic terminology associated with the art and science of horticulture.
* To gain an appreciation of horticulture as a life-long pursuit. 

Meets every Friday, April 17-June 26, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. until noon at the Cape Girardeau County Extension Center.
