WHO WE ARE
Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. We are enthusiastic, willing to learn and help others, and able to communicate with diverse groups of people.
What really sets us apart from other home gardeners is our special training in horticulture. In exchange for training, Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers, working through their Texas AgriLife Extension office to provide horticultural-related information to their communities. See the “Projects” tab to see some of the Wood County gardens you enjoy that are developed and maintained by the Wood County Master Gardeners!
Officers of the Wood County Master Gardeners serve one calendar year terms and are elected at the Annual Meeting in November.
