Extension Master Gardeners

Horticulture>MG LogoThe Master Gardener Program is a Kansas State University Extension program that helps volunteers learn more about growing and caring for plants.  Our local program started in 1989.  About 15 new gardeners are trained each year.  The 56 hour class will meet on Fridays in September, October and November from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M.  This is followed by a commitment of a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer time during the first year.  Thereafter 10 hours of volunteer time and 10 hours of continuing education are required each year to remain in the Master Gardener Program. 

You can become a Master Gardener if you are willing to learn about horticulture and share your knowledge with others.
