Missouri Master Gardeners volunteer to teach others their passion

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – During this National Volunteer Week, University of Missouri Extension horticulturist Tamra Reall notes that volunteers across the state are the backbone of the Missouri Master Gardener Extension Program.

“They are such an important part of our extension mission and are ambassadors for sharing research-based information with our communities,” Reall says.

For Master Gardener Sherri Carter of Oak Grove, her grandmother’s passion fueled a lifelong interest in gardening and in teaching others how to garden.
