Trained Horticulture Volunteers

Welcome to San Jacinto County Texas Master Gardeners.  San Jacinto County is one of the smaller counties within the State of Texas.  Our areas include the Sam Houston National Forest and land around the southern areas of Lake Livingston.

The SJC Master Gardeners are trained volunteers who give their time, knowledge and expertise in horticulture to improve the quality of life.

We support the Texas A&M Extension Program by providing educational opportunities to Texas residents offering research-based, effective and sustainable horticulture practices.
