The Bell County Master Gardeners Association assists the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in providing high quality, relevant, research-based horticultural education and service to the residents of Bell County and the state of Texas through outreach, teaching, and demonstration projects.
Bell County Master Gardeners are volunteers who work with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to improve gardening skills throughout the community. Program objectives are implemented through the training of local volunteers known as Master Gardeners. We collaborate with the Extension to:
- conduct youth and community education;
- establish and maintain demonstration gardens;
- provide 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. We recruit and educate new Master Gardener candidates for effective volunteering. Master Gardeners are local volunteers in your community who work with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to increase the availability of horticultural information and improve your community’s quality of life through various horticultural projects.
