SJC Master Gardeners live in two of the least populated of Texas’ counties, but our territory is rich in flora and fauna. We are surrounded by the Sam Houston National Forest and the southern areas of Lake Livingston, Texas’ second-largest reservoir. Our members come from San Jacinto and Polk Counties and share their knowledge of and passion in horticulture.
We are life-long learners and trained volunteers who give time, knowledge and expertise plants and growing them to improve the quality of life for neighbors and visitors to 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.
Our monthly social and educational outings take us to regional parks, horticulture centers, museums, birding sites, and much more. These half-day events are fun, learning experiences that help us build bonds of friendship as we deepen our education of horticulture.
