What is the Speakers Bureau all about?

As one of the educational activities of the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks, the speakers bureau is an effort to provide educational activities to the community.  Master Gardeners sign up for various presentations that they are knowledgeable in and willing to share with others.

Master Gardeners are volunteers of the University of Missouri who have been trained to conduct horticultural educational programs in their communities.

Groups who would like to have a Master Gardener present horticultural information often include civic groups, garden clubs, schools, nursing homes, community centers and many more.

Requests are generally for informal presentations lasting 20 to 60 minutes long.

How Can Your Group Obtain a Speaker?

Your group can request a speaker at least three weeks in advance of the speaking engagement.  This allows time for scheduling and preparation.

There is no fee charged to have a Master Gardener speak at your function.  To schedule a speaker for your next meeting or conference please contact the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks at the Stone County Extension Office.
