Master Gardener


A diverse group of individuals who have completed the Extension Master Gardener horticulture curriculum offered by K-State Research & Extension.

Extension Master Gardeners continue to "grow" in their horticulture knowledge by attending monthly research based training sessions and field trips.

Extension Master Gardeners are not necessarily gardening experts, but share a passion for gardening. They have a desire to learn and a willingness to use the acquired knowledge and skills to help others.

The Wyandotte County Extension Master Gardeners devote volunteer hours within the community by participation in educational programs such as; demonstration gardens, gardening workshops, horticulture hotline, speaking engagements, youth programs, and more.
