Master Gardener

Calling all Gardeners…

 

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office of Bosque County Extension Office will be offering a Master Gardener Training starting on September 1, 2022. If you are an avid gardener or someone who enjoys learning about horticulture this is a great opportunity. Training topics will include in-depth classes on plant diseases, soil fertility, trees, grasses, vegetable production, irrigation, organic gardening, entomology and more.

 

You may ask yourself what exactly is a Master Gardener?   A Master Gardener is an individual who has completed extensive training and has served the community by sharing their gardening knowledge through the activities of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. If you are accepted into the training program, complete the classroom training portion, and pass the final exam at the end of the course, you will be required to complete a minimum of 50 hours of volunteer service by August 31, 2023. Your volunteer hours will be spent on various Extension-approved projects, which will be explained to you during the program. By conducting the Master Gardener Program the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service – Bosque County Office strives to increase the availability of horticultural information and improve the quality of life with horticultural projects.
