Master Gardeners are a group of dedicated volunteers who give back to their communities through educational programs on gardening and community projects. Master Gardeners provide unbiased horticultural information and education to the public based on proven research, specific to the climate, soil and other growing conditions of our county.
To become trained as a Master Gardener, individuals must attend the 30-hour classroom core training and agree to provide 30 hours of volunteer service to their community for their first year as a trainee. Following completion of this, he/she becomes an Active Master Gardener–A certified Master Gardener who annually completes at least 20 hours of volunteer service in regionally approved programs and at least six additional hours of continuing education within that calendar year.
Phelps County Master Gardeners meet on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:00 p.m.
Meetings are held at the First Baptist Church, 801 N Cedar St. Rolla, MO 65401
