The Master Gardeners of Bell County

are volunteers who work with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to improve gardening skills throughout the community. Program objectives are implemented through the training of local volunteers known as Master Gardeners. We collaborate with Extension to conduct youth and community education; establish and maintain demonstration gardens; and provide a speakers bureau. We work with special audiences in the community (4-H horticultural clubs, Junior Master Gardener groups, schools, and others) for youth and community outreach of a horticultural nature. We recruit and educate new Master Gardener candidates for effective volunteering.  Master Gardeners are local volunteers in your community who work with the Texas AgriLife Extension Service to increase the availability of horticultural information and improve your communities quality of life through various horticultural projects.

Monthly Meetings

Bell County Master Gardeners hold monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of each month at 11:00am at the Bell County Texas Agrilife Extension Classroom at 1605 N. Main St., Belton. A social gathering time before the meeting begins at 10:30 am. Monthly meetings include a business meeting followed by an educational session. These educational sessions qualify for one hour of continuing education for Master Gardeners. All Master Gardeners and the public are invited to attend.

The Spring Plant Sale was March 29, 2014. Thanks to everyone who came out, it was a beautiful day and we had a great sale.    This helps us purchase materials for our training and educational efforts, demonstration garden plants and materials, and other miscellaneous items.  No funds are used to pay volunteers nor are these funds used for anything not related to our mission.  We would like to thank you for your help to support horticultural education efforts in Bell County.
