Master Gardeners

What is a Master Gardener?

The Texas Master Gardener program is an educational volunteer program conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

Master Gardeners are:

  • members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers, and gardens.
  • enthusiastic, willing to learn and help others and able to communicate with diverse groups of people.
  • specially trained in horticulture.
  • use their training and contribute their time to provide horticultural-related information to their communities.

Four ways we provide gardening information to our community

We share and interact with the community in four ways: through our website, on our Facebook page, through eMail and in person.

On the Website

  • We hold educational events throughout the year at the Harvest Garden, and all are welcome.. It is a backyard style edible garden on the grounds of Henderson County Fairpark Complex, constantly tended, planted and replanted by our Master Gardeners.  Year round, this garden is a source of inspiration and good ideas.
  • We consult with schools and community organizations about their gardening projects or problems.
