Longview Farm Park has a group of dedicated volunteers who have been renovating, enlarging and enhancing the gardens that are around the historic home since May 2002.
Master Gardeners are involved in nearly all aspects of care at Longview Farm Park. We plant annuals in spring and fall, weed, deadhead, divide, while successfully battling poison ivy, Japanese beetles and ticks. If you would like to learn general garden maintenance, have a say in what plants are selected for the annual beds, and wish to work in the most beautiful 30 acres in West County, this project is for you.
We are a knowledgeable bunch consisting of many Master Gardeners, some already working in the hort industry, and others who continue to learn horticulture at STLCC Meramec. We meet every Friday morning from late March to early November. If we are tackling a large project, we add other workdays. The city supplies tools, but many members bring their favorites from home.
