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. They are enthusiastic, willing to learn, to volunteer and help others, and able to communicate with diverse groups of people.

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. Master Gardeners contribute their time as volunteers through their Extension office to provide horticultural-related information to their communities. This includes conducting youth and community education; establishing and maintaining demonstration gardens; and providing 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.
