Call the county extension office to obtain an application. You will then attend a Master Gardener training class, which is offered once a year. Classes are taught by Texas A & M AgriLife Extension specialists, agents, and local experts.
The program offers a minimum of 50 hours of instruction that covers topics such as lawn care, ornamental trees and shrubs; insects, disease, and weed management; soils and plant nutrition; vegetable gardening; home fruit production; garden flowers; and herbs.
In exchange for training, participants are asked to volunteer time to their County Extension program. At least 50 hours of volunteer service within one year following the training is required to earn the title of “Texas Master Gardener.”
