What is the Master Gardener Program?

The Master Gardener Program is more than a horticulture class or gardening club. It is a volunteer program that enables participants to serve their communities through horticulture education. The knowledge and leadership skills developed by Master Gardeners through this program illustrate additional benefits.

Lyon County Master Gardener Mission

The Lyon County Extension Master Gardener Association represents Kansas State University and the Lyon County Extension Council. Members will communicate research-based information to improve home and community environments and quality of life through horticultural activities.
