Mills County Master Gardeners

Master Gardeners are trained volunteers who provide research-based, home horticulture information and education to local communities through ISU Extension programs and projects.  Master Gardener program participants gain a broad knowledge base in 13 horticultural subject areas.  In 2011, Mills County Master Gardeners contributed over 1500 hours of horticulture-related community service!

The Mills County Master Gardeners is a county-wide group of individuals who have completed the Iowa Master Gardener training offered through Iowa State University Extension and Mills County Extension. The group also includes several spouses of Master Gardeners, dubbed "Co-Horts" who provide additional and much appreciated service to the organization!

The group sponsors several horticulture seminars on a variety of topics throughout the year, provides information at the Glenwood and Silver City Farmer's Markets with a question/answer booth, sponsors horticulture awards at the Mills County Fair, assists with Mills County Extension horticulture programming, hosts an annual Mills County Garden Walk, provides scholarships to high school graduates from Mills County, offers grants for community beautification projects, and holds an annual plant/bake sale fundraiser.  For more information on the group, please contact the Mills County Extension Office at (712) 624-861
