Training opportunities for Texas Master Gardeners are listed below:
MASTER GARDENER ADVANCED TRAINING TRAININGS – These workshops provide advanced training whereby a corps of Master Gardeners can obtain a specialization which supports or expands specific county educational programs of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service. To be eligible for a Specialist designation, an individual must possess an up-to-date Master Gardener certification.
EARTH-KIND® TRAINING FOR MASTER GARDENERS – Texas Master Gardeners may select on-line modules to obtain up to 3 hours of re-certification education credits in a calendar year. Each module is worth 1 hour of credit. Master Gardeners are not encouraged to seek re-certification credit for training modules they have completed in previous years.
LANDSCAPE DESIGN STUDY COURSES – These courses provide an opportunity for more in-depth training in landscape design than is normally included in the Master Gardener curriculum. Each course is typically approved by local Master Gardener chapters to qualify for 12 hours of continuing education toward maintaining certification for Master Gardeners.
