The Cameron County Master Gardener Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational and charitable entity that trains individuals in the science and art of gardening in partnership with the AgriLife Extension Service.
Program objectives are primarily implemented through trained volunteers— valuable resources in the field— who educate adults and youth through demonstrations, speaking engagements, the media, and community events.
The Education Garden, our demonstration garden, located at the County Annex on the corner of Williams Road and Expressway 77 in San Benito, includes butterfly and vegetable gardens, composting options, rainwater harvesting, and trees that grow well in deep South Texas.
For the months from November to May, Association Meetings will be held on the second Tuesday of the month in the Extension meeting room at the County Building.
