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.
