2019 Master Gardener Open House Event Scheduled
Colorado County members of the Bluebonnet Master Gardener Association would like to extend an invitation to learn more about the master gardener program! The Bluebonnet Master Gardener Assocation is a four county chapter spanning Austin, Colorado, Fayette, and Washington Counties. Master Gardeners are volunteers, trained by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension in research-based horticulture including soils, water conservation, composting, entomology, plant pathology and related subjects. As County Extension Service volunteers, they give to the community by extending research-based knowledge and providing solutions in one-to-one problem solving, in a demonstration gardens and educational programs. What really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture. The next Master Gardener certification training course will begin in January of 2020. It is an intensive 14 week course with both classroom instruction and field trips. More information on the 2020 training class can be found on our website at https://txmg.org/bluebonnet/join-us-2/. Please join us on Saturday, October 26th from 9 am – 1pm on the Colorado County Courthouse Square in conjunction with the Columbus Country Market to learn more about the master gardener program! If you have any questions please contact the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office of Colorado County at 979-732-2082.
