Fall Gardening Workshop in Kimberling City Oct. 20

The Master Gardeners of the Ozarks will be hosting the ninth annual “Fall Gardening Workshop” from 9:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 20 in the community room at the Kimberling City Senior Center, 63 Kimberling Hills Blvd., Kimberling City, Mo.

This year’s location was moved from the Kimberling City Library due to the popularity of the program and the large number of attendees in previous years.

The event is designed for homeowners seeking tips on garden management.

This program will feature presentations on topics on deer resistant gardening, weed identification and management, successful drought-tolerant plants, and basics on bees for the backyard. There will also be a question and answer clinic.

“The Master Gardeners are drawing this year on speakers who have a lot of experience in these topics so it should be an outstanding workshop.” said Tim Schnakenberg, agronomy specialist, University of Missouri Extension.

Space is limited and advance registration is required. A continental breakfast, catered lunch and snacks will be provided for pre-registered participants.

For more information on the cost and to preregister, contact the Stone County Extension Center at (417) 357-6812 by Oct. 17. More information regarding the speakers and an online registration form is available on the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks website at
