Master Gardeners

Master Gardeners are individuals who enjoy learning and sharing their gardening knowledge with others. There are no prerequisites to participate in Master Gardener training, except to have an interest in gardening, a willingness to learn and a desire to give back to local communities through volunteer service and education.

After completing training, Master Gardeners expand the reach of University of Missouri Extension using research-based horticultural information to answer gardening questions in their local communities.

The Franklin County Master Gardeners meet monthly to learn, share project ideas and opportunities, and take care of business.  For more information call 636-583-5141 or email
