Randall County Master Gardeners
Commitment to service, demonstration, and education drives Randall County Master Gardeners (RCMG) to beautify Canyon and Amarillo communities.
Currently Master Gardeners maintain four demonstration gardens in Canyon and Amarillo. These gardens, designed and created by RCMG, show the variety of plants which can thrive in the harsh conditions of the Texas Panhandle. Randall County Master Gardeners invite visitors and residents to visit the following gardens:
The Herbert F. and Jeannie Kuhlman Extension Garden, 200 N. Brown Road, Canyon;
The Red, White, and Blue Veterans Garden, I-27 & Georgia, Amarillo;
The Texas A&M AgriLife Research Center, 6500 Amarillo Boulevard West, Amarillo;
The Meditation Garden, Amarillo Botanical Gardens, 1500 Streit Drive, Amarillo.
Master Gardeners serve these communities by volunteering 2,000-3,000 hours annually through gardening and educational programs. Educational programs include Intern training classes, lecture series, garden tours,farmers markets, Tri-State Fair, and youth programs such Junior Master Gardeners and the Canyon Ag Fair.
Interested area citizens may choose to become a Master Gardener by enrolling in educational classes as Interns. Interns receive fifty (50) hours of classroom instruction supported by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Services. Then they volunteer for fifty (50) hours in Randall County Master Gardeners gardens and educational programs. Registration information will come in the near future.
This diverse group of gardeners, with their passion for gardening, education, beautification and commitment to service continue to show area residents ways to create beauty in this unique part of the great state of Texas.
