Master Gardener Info Table – Farmers’ Market
August 3, 2019/7:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
Plant Questions? El Paso Master Gardeners have the answers. You’ll find them at an Information Booth at the Farmers’ Market at Ardovino’s Desert Crossing.
Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service training provides El Paso Master Gardeners with research-based horticulture information and resources to enhance our wide range of gardening experiences in El Paso. The Information Booths are also stocked with a wealth of free publications on topics ranging from composting to growing tomatoes and roses to landscape planning and design. As produce becomes available in our demonstration garden, we plan to sell garlic, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, and other vegetables.
Be on the lookout, too, for the new El Paso Gardening Handbook created by the El Paso County Master Gardeners for our area. It addresses El Paso specific gardening concerns and best practices. With sections on ornamentals, edibles, turf, native and adapted plants, woody plants, and climate, it will appeal to both experienced and novice gardeners. The handbook was written in cooperation with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and provides research-based information. The handbooks may be purchased for $10 each. For the vegetable and handbook sales, only cash is accepted, no credit cards.
We hope you visit our Information Table to learn more about landscapes and gardening in El Paso and about the Texas Master Gardener Program.
