The Taylor County Master Gardener program is an educational and volunteer program offered by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service of the Texas A&M University System. It is open to people of all ages, regardless of socioeconomic level, race, color, sex, handicap or national origin.
The program is designed to increase the availability of horticultural information and extend horticultural projects throughout the community. These goals are implemented through the training and employment of local volunteers known as Master Gardeners.
The Master Gardener program provides invaluable training and educational opportunities. Professional and amateur horticulturists, as well as persons simply seeking up-to-date horticultural information, can advance their gardening expertise, and gain self-satisfaction through volunteer efforts.
The volunteer aspect of the Master Gardener program allows individuals to dedicate their time and talents to enhancing the quality of life for citizens in their community using the science and art of horticulture.
