Master Gardener Program to Begin in February

CARTHAGE, Mo –

Jasper County University of Missouri Extension will be sponsoring a Missouri Master Gardener training program, beginning in February. The program is designed to train volunteers in various aspects of horticulture. The Master Gardeners participate in a wide variety of community service projects and assist University of Missouri Extension in providing unbiased educational information to the public.

A person who wishes to become a Master Gardener is required to attend 30 hours of training, and agree to return 30 hours of volunteer service during the following year. The fee is $150, but thanks to the support of the Ozark Gateway Master Gardener organization, scholarships are available to reduce this fee for those participating in the training.

Topics covered include such things as an orientation to the Master Gardener program, home lawn and turf, plant growth and development, soils and plant nutrition, woody ornamentals – establishment and care, plant diseases, home fruit production, insects, vegetables, and herbaceous perennial flowers.

To apply for the program or to obtain further information, contact Janet LaFon, Courthouse Basement, Carthage, MO 64836, 417-358-2158, e-mail: jasperco@missouri.edu.
