Extension Master Gardener (EMG)
The Extension Master Gardener program is a volunteer program that provides training in all aspects of horticulture. Master Gardeners have met specific goals and are a vital part of K-State Research and Extension's ability to provide accurate, up-to-date and research based information to our customers. Douglas County EMG service activities are coordinated by the local county extension horticulture agent.
EMG Activities: garden tours (odd years), spring garden show (even years), junior master gardeners, demonstration gardens, gardening workshops, produce donation, library programs, speakers bureau, plant sales
The July program will be held virtually on Saturday, July 18 at 10:15 am:
Kim Bomberger, Community District Forester for K-State Forestry, will be our speaker for July. She will talk about the role of people in the urban forest and introduce the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB): how to identify this pest, chemical treatment, and how to evaluate whether your tree is worth saving. Kim will also speak to the importance of the diversity of trees in the urban landscape.
