Master Gardeners

In 2003, Warren County held its first Master Gardener program. Since that time, the Master Gardeners have taken on several community projects. One of those projects include maintaining the landscaping and grounds around the Schowengerdt Historical Home in Warrenton.

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 Warren County Master Gardeners meet the second Tuesday of the month at the extension center to learn and to share project ideas and opportunities. 

We are proud to announce that the Master Gardener training course is now available online at:

Spring Lawn Care - Aeration, Fertility and Crabgrass Control (PDF)
