The Master Gardeners of the Ozarks is a University of Missouri volunteer organization dedicated to public horticultural education. Our Mission is to educate others about safe, effective and sustainable horticultural practices that build healthy gardens, landscapes and communities.
We will be hosting the 2018 Missouri Master Gardener State Conference on September 28-30, 2018 at the Chateau on the Lake Resort and Convention Center in Branson, Missouri. This conference will be open to the general public. Our workshops and field trips will attract an estimated 250 conference attendees from six states. Cody George, Crystal Bridge’s Museum of American Art Landscape Horticulturalist, will be our keynote speaker. Industry specialists and experts will provide timely educational content. A welcome reception, banquets, vendors and exhibitors, and a silent auction round out the activities and provide valuable networking opportunities.
