Sustainable Gardening Program
The Missoula County Extension Sustainable Gardening Program is a multi-leveled program to explore both broad fundamentals of horticulture and plant production, as well as investigating specific advanced topics. The Sustainable Gardening Program aligns closely to the MT Master Gardener Program, but is tailored to fit the specific needs of this region. This program has greater flexibility of the topic material, will have the same requirements for certification, and will be more robust than the Level 1 MT Master Gardener Program. This program is open to everyone and will be held at multiple times and locations to meet the community needs of the greater Missoula County.
