The Master Gardener volunteer program began in the early 1970’s in response to the rapidly increasing interest in home gardening. The idea was to train knowledgeable garden volunteers to help University Extension staff deliver home gardening information to the public. The idea worked!
Today, the Master Gardener volunteer program is recognized nationally as a means for individuals to learn and to share horticultural knowledge with others. 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 consists of eleven, 3-hour sessions covering the following topics:
Orientation and Paperwork (2 HR Max.)
Understanding Soil and Plant Nutrition
Plant Growth and Development
Annual / Floral and Vegetable Production
Perennial Gardening (Trees, Shrubs, and Perennial plants)
Raised Bed and Container Grown Gardening
Insect and/or Integrated Pest Management
Fruit Trees, Bramble Berries, and Grape Production
Lawn and Turf Management
Plant Diagnostics and Disease Control
Greenhouses and High Tunnels
Courses will be conducted by MU Extension Specialists and other professionals.
