2015 Spring Plant Sale – April 25th, 2015.
If you are looking for out-of-the ordinary, native and adapted plants that do well in this part of Texas, plan now to attend our spring plant sale. Quantities on some of these plants are limited, so we recommend you plan to be at the Modern Living Mall at the Taylor County Expo Center 8:00 am until 1:00 pm, Saturday, April 25th.
Big Country Master Gardeners host semi-annual plant sales to raise funds to support our ongoing work in the following areas.
- Junior Master Gardeners – our association sponsors several local Junior Master Gardener groups. The mission of the Junior Master Gardener Program is to grow good kids by igniting a passion for learning, success and service through unique gardening educational opportunities. We use plant sale proceeds to buy gardening tools and supplies, seeds, plants, and youth workbooks, incentives and awards.
- Demonstration Gardens – Big Country Master Gardeners actively maintain demonstration gardens that focus on ways we can all have beautiful, sustainable, low-maintenance gardens here in the Big Country and still be good stewards of our natural resources.
- Community Education – Big Country Master Gardeners host workshops, certification programs, and other educational events that are grounded in our mission to bring research-based horticultural science to citizens of the Big Country.
