Plant questions? El Paso Master Gardeners have the answers. Join us on September 28th at our Information Table at the Chihuahuan Desert Fiesta to ask questions and pick up free gardening brochures.

 

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service training provides El Paso County Master Gardeners with research-based horticulture information and resources as a foundation for their wide range of experiences in gardening in the El Paso. Certified Master Gardeners and Master Gardener Interns share that knowledge with members of the community who visit our Information Tables at many public events throughout the year. The Information Tables are stocked with a wealth of free publications on growing vegetables, gardening, and landscaping.

 

Be on the lookout, too, for the El Paso Gardening Handbook created by El Paso County Master Gardeners for our area. It addresses El Paso specific gardening concerns and best practices.

 

In 2019 the 15th annual Chihuahuan Desert Fiesta will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Franklin Mountains State Park’s conception. It is the signature event of the Chihuahuan Desert Education Coalition and Franklin Mountains State Park. At this free event you can discover the wonders of our desert while you enjoy educational exhibits, entertainment, guided hikes, demonstrations, and other fun outdoor activities.

We look forward to seeing you at our Information Table.
