Gardening has become an important activity of many Southwest Missourians. Gardening is an excellent way to beautify our landscape and provide a healthy activity for the homeowner. It also is a huge industry in our region and impacts water quality. To help address the general horticulture and gardening needs of the public, a thriving Master Gardener program is present in Stone and Taney Counties. Master Gardeners are University of Missouri trained volunteers who assist with organized horticulture education programs for the gardening public. As of December 31, there were 110 Master Gardeners in the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks chapter. Of these there are 63 who reside in Stone County, 40 residing in Taney County, three in Barry County, two in Christian County and two who reside in Boone County, Arkansas.
