Proudly hosted by the McLennan County Master Gardener Association in Waco, TX at the Waco Convention Center.
The annual conference provides an opportunity for Texas Master Gardener volunteers from around the state to receive continuing education hours, participate in hands-on workshops, go on fascinating tours unique to the area, shop specialized vendors, and converse and fellowship with Master Gardeners — all during a three-day event.
Three Full Days Include:
- 15 engaging breakout sessions
- 9 instructional workshops
- 6 diverse tours
- 4 compelling keynote speakers
- Awards Banquet
- Silent Auction/Vendor Area
Please consider coming a day early to partake in the Leadership Training. This year, we are bringing in a professional trainer to lead attendees in an interactive workshop on developing a vibrant volunteer environment fostering collaboration, empowerment and communication to help you nurture and grow your people.
