Extension Master Gardener (EMG)
Mission: To share research-based, horticultural information with residents of Douglas County, in partnership with K-State Research and Extension.
The Extension Master Gardener program is a volunteer program that provides training in all aspects of horticulture. Master Gardener volunteers then share accurate, up-to-date and research based information with the community through demonstration gardens, educational programming and individual horticultural help.
The EMG volunteer program is open to any Douglas County resident, or resident of a neighboring county that does not have its own EMG program, who has the time and desire to donate volunteer hours to the EMG program.
EMG Activities: garden tours (odd years), spring garden show (even years), horticulture helpline, Junior Master Gardeners, demonstration gardens, gardening workshops, produce donation, library programs, speakers bureau, plant sales.
If you are interested in becoming an Extension Master Gardener, please check back on this page later this spring for an announcement opening the registration for the class. Read more information on the program HERE.
