The Texas Master Gardener Program is designed to support the mission of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service by providing horticultural education and training to residents of Nueces County.
Our mission focuses on educational outreach to the community, sharing research -based, environmentally conservative methods of garden and landscape management, water protection, plant selection and other horticulture issues. Master Gardener volunteers use and provide information generated by research at Texas A&M University, Texas A&M AgriLife Research centers and institutions of higher education that are part of the United States Land Grant University system.
The Nueces Master Gardeners have been in existence for over 25 years, and became incorporated in 2009 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
The Nueces Master Gardener Association was established by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension to enhance the community through demonstration gardens and workshops relevant to our unique South Texas environment. In partnership and conjunction with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, the Extension trains volunteers to educate their communities in the cultivation of plants and resource conservation.
