SJC Master Gardeners are resident in one of the smallest of Texas’ counties, our territory is rich in flora and fauna. We are surrounded by the Sam Houston National Forest and he southern areas of Lake Livingston, Texas’ second largest reservoir.
All of us are life-long learners and trained volunteers who give time, knowledge and expertise in horticulture to improve the quality of life for neighbors and visitors with our east Texas community. We support the Texas A&M Extension Program by providing educational opportunities to Texas residents, offering research-based, effective and sustainable horticulture practices for home and property.
