Plant questions? El Paso Master Gardeners have the answers. You’ll find them at an Information Table where we’re joining the Texas State Arbor Day Celebration in El Paso, Texas.
In Texas, the official state Arbor Day celebration is held in a different host city each year on the first Friday in November. In 2018, the Texas A&M Forest Service chose El Paso for this year’s state celebration.
This year’s Texas Arbor Day celebration theme has been aptly named Growing our Desert Canopy. Arbor Day festivities will feature a ceremony, educational activities and tree plantings. The Arbor Day program is from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. The event is free and open to the public.
While you’re at the Arbor Day celebration, please stop by the El Paso Master Gardeners’ Information Table. Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service training provides El Paso Master Gardeners with research-based horticulture information and resources to augment their wide range of experiences in gardening in the El Paso. Master Gardeners share that knowledge with members of the community who visit our Information Tables at many public events throughout the year. The Information Tables are also stocked with a wealth of free publications on topics ranging from composting to growing roses or tomatoes and landscape planning and design.
