Events

We host 3 annual events of interest to our members and the general public: a Spring Workshop, a Garden Tour and a Fall Workshop. We try to have engaging and informative speakers at our workshops, which have become more and more successful each year. Attendance at our  Garden Tours is always ample enough to provide money for our charitable projects.

The money raised from these events is used for our charitable purposes, including a scholarship awarded each year to a College of the Ozarks horicultural undergraduate.

In the Spring Workshop our desire is to cover topics of interest pertaining to the spring and summer planting and growing seasons.

Our Spring Gardening Workshop is usually held the first or second Saturday of March each year. We try to use a location near Branson, in Taney county for this annual event.

Springtime in the Garden is our annual Plant Sale, but it’s so much more. We include Arbor Day and educational activities, fun stuff for the kids and an all-around good time for everyone. Our chapter spends the winter and early spring months preparing plants for sale. There are always wide varieties and good prices.

Watch for this event in late April of each year, held in Forsyth, usually at the Taney County Extension Office near downtown.

Each year, the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks sponsors a Garden Tour, benefiting 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.

The Fall Workshop is hosted every year by the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks. Our aim is to provide an informative session devoted to gardening topics pertaining to the fall and winter seasons and topics to get the gardener ready for spring planting. We try to hold this workshop in Stone county, usually in the Kimberling City area, in late September or early October.
