Tiger Garden opened its doors as MU's full-service floral shop in August 2005 and is predominately operated by students attending MU. Our mission is to expand the educational process by combining traditional textbook learning with hands-on small business experience in an entrepreneurial environment. Student employees experience what it's like to run a small business and solve the unexpected challenges associated with daily business operations. We proudly serve the entire MU community and surrounding community. We are committed to offering only the finest floral arrangements and gifts, backed by service that is friendly and prompt. Because all of our customers are important, our staff is dedicated to making your experience a pleasant one!
Kim serves as a mentor and provides daily guidance and assistance to the students managing and operating the shop. Kim is also the lead instructor for the Floral Design courses offered under the Division of Plant Sciences.

Tiger Garden has anywhere from 8-15 student employees on the schedule at all times. All of the students have different roles and duties to keep the shop operating smoothly! There are traditionally 2-3 "Student Managers" that are charged with the task of fully operating the day-to-day business of the shop and managing their fellow student co-workers. All students are trained to answer the phones, respond to emails, take orders, answer questions, make arrangements, and any other number of tasks associated with daily operation. Our students look forward to hearing from and working with you!
