Missouri Master Gardener training

Thursday, Oct 19, 2017, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

University of Missouri Extension Center

Through activities such as Extension newsletter articles, workshops, speakerís bureaus, garden show

booths and demonstration projects, Master Gardeners provide gardening information to thousands of

Missourians each year.

To become trained as a Master Gardener, an individual must attend a 30 hour classroom Core Course

training. Then the Master Gardener trainee is required to give 30 hours of volunteer service back to

their community in approved University of Missouri Extension activities.

The core course training will be held at the Cape Girardeau County Extension Center in Jackson from 6

to 9 p.m. Training is slated to begin on September 14 and will be every Thursday thereafter

until November 16. The cost of the class is $165, which includes the Master Gardener Core Manual,

State Fees, refreshments, and speaker fees. Registration deadline is September 11. The program will

cover the subjects of plant anatomy, soils and fertility, annual and perennial flowers, fruits and

brambles, vegetable gardening, lawn care, insects, landscaping, propagation and plant disease. For
