Jasper County Master Gardener Program Registration Deadline February 5

CARTHAGE, Mo. – Would you like to know what disease might be attacking your plants, what insect is destroying your favorite ornamental, how to grow vegetables for your family or what kind of trees are growing in your yard? These are just a few things you could learn in a Master Gardener course.

This year’s training course in Jasper County begins February 18. The class sessions will be held on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons through the first part of April. The deadline to register for the course is February 5. Anyone who has not already received an application can request one by calling University of Missouri Extension in Carthage at (417) 358-2158, or email jasperco@missouri.edu.

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. Enrollment is limited and there is a fee to cover the costs of the program and materials.

Jasper County University of Missouri Extension has conducted a Missouri Master Gardener program since 1992. Trained Master Gardeners assist Extension specialists in providing unbiased educational information about various aspects of horticulture to the public. Since 1992, over 440 people have taken the course here in Jasper County. Many of these are very active in conducting community projects, providing educational programs and other horticultural/gardening activities.

University of Missouri Extension improves people’s lives with education and research from the four campuses of the University of Missouri System and Lincoln University that focuses on high-priority needs of people throughout the state. Each County Extension Center, with oversight by locally elected and appointed citizens, is your local link to these unbiased resources.
