10,000 Garden Challenge - A New Program from AgriMissouri

We have registered most of the gardens at Nathanael Greene/Close Memorial Park in the AgriMissouri 10,000 Gardens Challenge. Have you registered yours yet? It's fun, fast and easy!

"Whether it's a home, community, church or school garden, we are challenging Missourians to get out and garden this spring. The 10,000 Garden Challenge encourages people to connect with agriculture, promotes local foods and healthy eating." Register here: 10,000 Garden Challenge

Crowd Funding for Butterfly House Docent

Using the MSU Foundation's crowdfunding site, we are attempting to raise $5000 for a summer intern at the Dr. Bill Roston Native Butterfly House.  This will enable us to be open longer hours so more people can learn about native butterflies and moths and the habitat they require.
