Jim Hastings, one of El Paso Master Gardeners’ available speakers
El Paso Master Gardeners love gardening and love to share information about gardening. We educate and inform through a variety of activities including a Speakers Bureau.
Our Speakers Bureau features an ever expanding array of gardening topics developed by experienced Master Gardeners using research-based information and resources from the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.
Garden clubs, schools, civic groups, service groups and others may call the El Paso Master Gardener Help Desk at (915) 771-2354 to request a speaker and program topic or fill out the request form found below on this page. We can also be contacted by email at email@example.com. If a topic other than one on the list below is wanted, Speakers Bureau members will make every effort to accommodate the request.
