MU Extension to Hold Master Gardener Classes in Neosho Starting Sept. 5; Registration Deadline is Aug. 28

PINEVILLE, Mo. -- The University of Missouri Extension will hold Master Gardener classes on Mondays and Thursdays from Sept. 5 to Oct. 7, 2013, at the University of Missouri Extension Office located at Crowder College in Neosho.

The mission of the Missouri Master Gardener program is “Helping Others Learn to Grow.” Master Gardeners involve people in improving the quality of life and enhancing the economy and environment through horticultural education, applied research and the resources of the University of Missouri.

Master gardeners are adults of all ages who love gardening. They are members of the local community who are interested in lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers, gardens, and the environment and want to learn more.

“The primary responsibility of the master gardener is to help find sound solutions to gardening and landscape problems and help answer questions about home horticulture,” said John Hobbs, an agriculture and rural development specialist, MU Extension.

Other opportunities include: gardening exhibits at home and garden shows and fairs, organize community gardening projects, and assisting in senior gardening projects.

Those interested in learning more about plants and gardening are urged to become master gardeners. The deadline to register for the class in Neosho is Aug. 28.

For more information, contact John Hobbs at the McDonald County Extension Center, P.O. Box 336 or by calling at 417- 223-4775 or by email at hobbsjc@missouri.edu.
