To help you decide if you should apply to be a Master Gardener, ask yourself these questions:
- Do I want to learn more about the culture and maintenance of many types of plants?
- Am I eager to participate in a practical and intense training program?
- Do I look forward to sharing my knowledge with people in my community?
- Do I have enough time to attend training and to complete the required volunteer service?
If you answered “yes” to these questions, then the Master Gardener program is for you.
The Grimes County Master Gardener Program consists of 50 hours of classroom training plus 50 hours of volunteer service provided and supervised by the Grimes County Master Gardener Association. After certifying, members are required each year to attend 6 hours of continuing education and provide 12 hours of volunteer service.
