In an effort to provide advanced training, the Master Gardener Plant Propagation Specialist training was created as a hands-on, intensive multi-day training that will empower Master Gardeners with knowledge and skills required to effectively support and multiply Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service efforts in educational programs. Master Gardeners who fulfill specified training and volunteer requirements will be recognized as a Master Gardener Specialist in the specific field of Plant Propagation. This certification does not empower the individual with supervisory or administrative authority within his/her local county programs.
To be eligible for Master Gardener Plant Propagation Specialist Training, an individual must possess an up-to-date Master Gardener certification, or be an employee of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension
Service. Master Gardener applicants must be approved by their local County Extension Agent.

To become a certified Master Gardener Plant Propagation Specialist, Master Gardeners are required to attend the Master Gardener Plant Propagation Specialist training to fulfill training requirements and subsequently meet service requirements described below. Training activities during the course will empower Master Gardeners to complete these service requirements.
