Master Gardener Volunteer Sites
St. Louis Master Gardeners are involved with many local community horticultural projects spanning the area in both the city and county. The Flora Conservancy of Forest Park relies on volunteer Master Gardeners to help rejuvenate, install and maintain garden beds within Forest Park. Gateway Greening also enlists the help of Master Gardeners to help transform neglected and abandoned lots in St. Louis into community gardens. And with the assistance of Brightside St. Louis, St. Louis Master Gardeners have helped put downtown St. Louis on the fast track for its floral displays in downtown street medians.
