A successful candidate for the program is anyone able and willing to donate volunteer hours in the community and/or MU Extension education programs. Master Gardeners develop their gardening and community potential while their efforts help others in the community. Master Gardeners serve as representatives of the University of Missouri Extension. They may engage in a variety of interesting education activities that benefit the community. After completing the course all first-year Master Gardeners must volunteer for 30 hours work to be completing this in Hickory County to complete the program. COURSE CONTENT Course consists of eleven, 3-hour sessions covering the following topics: Orientation and Paperwork (2 HR Max.)
