Annual Garden Tour

Garden Tour

Annual Garden Tour LogoEach year, the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks sponsors a Garden Tour, benefitting our charitable works in Stone and Taney Counties. Most of our proceeds endow a scholarship awarded to horticultural subject majors at College of the Ozarks.

The Tour is usually held in June. Check our website in March or April of each year for information, dates, etc.


Annual Garden Tour Cancelled for 2020

It is with extreme disappointment to inform you of the cancellation of the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks, Bohemian Garden Rhapsody Tour. The tour was slated to be held at Bonniebrook on Saturday, June 13. Due to the Corona Virus Epidemic, the Master Gardeners follow the guidelines issued by the University of Missouri. Phase II of their guidelines, starting June 18, allows for gatherings of only 50 people.

Refunds will be issued to those who have registered for the tour.

  • If you registered and paid on line through PayPay. be watching for an email from PayPal with details of your refund. It will be credited to the same credit/debit card you used to pay for the event.
  • If you registered and paid by mail, you will receive a refund check in the mail from Master Gardeners of the Ozarks with Stone County Extension Office as the return address.

I want to thank all the Master Gardeners for their support. This past year has been filled with great anticipation, workdays, planning and many completed projects. With the extensive preparation that has been completed this year, all the pieces are in place to build an even better Garden Tour event for 2021.
We will notify you as soon as we decide on a garden tour date for 2021.

Thank you for your understanding during this time of uncertainty.
