About Us

The mission of the Missouri Master Gardener program is to train volunteers to educate others about safe, effective and sustainable horicultural practices that build healthy gardens, landscapes, and communities. The Christian County Master Gardeners volunteer their time to help others in Christian County learn about gardening and environmental stewardship.

Master Gardeners is sponsored by the University of Missouri Extension, which is committed to providing equity and access to all through the implementation of practices and procedures that ensure compliance with federal laws and university policies, and that enhance the Extension's capacity to serve the people of Missouri.
