MOMGA Statewide Events

Friends of the Garden Event Calendar


It's summertime and it's hot! No need to tell you that.  What do you do with the kids?  The Kimberling Area Library in Kimberling City is a great place to take the kids.   Master Gardeners of the Ozarks have been working hard on a Community Enhancement Project  with the Kimberling Area Library Association.     The  concept is an interactive garden with a playground.   Playground equippement was donated and installed by the Rotary Club and the American Legion post both of Kimberling City.

Master Gardener Julie Jacob submitted and got approved a variety of gardens.   A large butterfly in the middle of the garden is made of whimsical flowers.   The gardens are made possible through private funds.   Carol Buzenius is a member of Thrivent and a library volunteer.   Here she greets kids from behind the sign which reads "KALA  Wild, Wacky and Wonderful Garden."   The sign goes on to share with the kids various garden favorites.

These gardens are dependent on volunteers such as sign painter Yvette Ayres - a member of the Board of Directors for the Library.


Master Gardeners Julie Jacob and Kathryn Kufahl say volunteers are greeted with ooohs and aaahs from kids learning in the ABC garden.
