Our Chapter maintains two public demonstration gardens which offer hands-on learning for members. You are invited to tour our gardens for free, from dawn to dusk, to view the plants and observe their growth throughout the seasons.
Master Gardener Demonstration Gardens at 2400 Scenic Ave., Springfield, Mo. 65807. Just north of The Botanical Center building, the beds include mixed border, herbs, vegetables, turf, ornamental grasses, and Missouri natives.
Xeriscape Garden at National Ave. and Linwood St., Springfield, Mo. Just south of the Springfield Art Museum, the garden focuses on water wise gardening and includes a Monarch Butterfly Waystation.
Master Gardeners of Greene County volunteer thousands of hours each year toward maintaining these two demonstration gardens in Springfield. Neither of the gardens would be possible without the excellent participation and support we receive from the Springfield-Greene County Board and City Utilities of Springfield, MO.
