Master Gardener's Speaker Bureau

The St. Louis Master Gardener Speakers Bureau provides quality horticultural information as a public service. All speakers are Master Gardener volunteers who have completed the Master Gardener training under the direction of University of Missouri Extension.

Each year St. Louis Master Gardeners make over 100 presentations to garden clubs, schools, businesses, churches, neighborhood and civic organizations.  Presentations are typically 50-60 minutes in length. Also available are five walking and teaching tours of Missouri Botanical Garden's specialty gardens and the annual orchid display.

Speaker Presentation or Missouri Botanical Garden Specialty Tour Fees:
$50.00 - garden, church, retirement groups
$75.00 - for-profit groups
