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 service activities are coordinated by the local county extension agent Marlin Bates.
Through this program, individuals are trained and certified in horticulture and other related areas. They, in turn, volunteer their expertise and services to help others through horticultural projects that benefit the community.
Extension Master Gardeners provide the latest, research-based information to the public on yard waste management, water conservation, integrated pest management, regional plant adaptability and environmental issues.
