Demonstration Gardens

Be sure to visit our Demonstration Gardens at the Williamson County Extension Office at 3151 SE Innerloop Road, Georgetown, Texas. There is no admission fee or charge. Master Gardeners are usually working in the vegetable garden area on Tuesday and Friday from 9-12 (weather permitting) and are available to answer questions.

Our demonstration gardens include raised bed and row vegetable gardens, a container garden, a rose garden, a drought tolerant garden, a herb garden, a fruit tree area with various fruit trees and a keyhole garden under construction. We have a several Texas A&M trial projects going on involving Earth-Kind techniques as well as a trial growing vegetables in different types of compost.

The demonstration gardens provide a unique hands on learning environment for new and experienced Master Gardeners and an opportunity to learn from other Master Gardeners.  They provide the public a way to see examples of research based horticulture techniques.

What is a Master Gardener?

Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. What sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture. Training is provided by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service through the local Extension office in Georgetown. Interested in becoming Master Gardener?
