The heart of the Master Gardener program resides at 618 S. Main Street in Quitman, Texas, commonly referred to as the Texas AgriLife Extension Office. The Wood County Extension Office has provided a classroom since 2007 for classes of trainees to develop their skills in designing and implementing beautification projects in the local community. Each class is able to benefit from the work by previous classes by seeing what worked and what needed altered to fit in the allotted space.

Efforts to beautify the building kicked off in Early Summer 2019 and wrapped up with a cohesive collection of seasonal color and hearty perennials.
Three beds were cleaned, planted and mulched.
Two water troughs were planted, and a special class was conducted on how to lasagna layer the container.
Wood County Master Gardeners pledged to maintain the project and open-up future routine maintenance opportunities to obtain their service hours.
