Order your bulbs online at and your bulbs will be available for pick up at the home of Gardeners Connect board member Bibie Chronwall, 1022 W 64th Terr, Kansas City, MO 64112 on Saturday November 7, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Her h...

Our Mission is to educate and inspire members of our community to become more complete gardeners

Gardeners, as gardens, are works in progress. We are always adapting, expanding, connecting, growing and learning. We are never perfect, never complete. We can always strive to be better, smarter, more informed and more complete.


We believe education doesn't have to be dry and technical to be educational. We strive to bring in experts with practical real world knowledge to the Kansas City stage and make it accessible to gardeners of all skill levels


Information is power and having access to to not only what is new in gardening but also what is tried and true helps us all be better gardeners


We connect gardeners to each other to help them build on each others skills, aspirations and knowledge. Our events are a great way to connect to one another.
