Fort Bend Master Gardener Classes
A “Master Gardener” is a gardening enthusiast of any age, who has been formally trained in Horticulture by the Extension Service. The Master Gardener does not know all the answers, but he or she does know the sources to consult to find the answers. You will have enhanced confidence in your own efforts in the garden, the opportunity to learn with professional instruction, the “Texas Master Gardener Handbook”, community service opportunities, gardener friendships, continuing educational opportunities through the Fort Bend Master Gardener Association, and much more! Master Gardeners provide volunteer service through the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Fort Bend County. To support the goals of AgriLife Extension Service, these volunteers offer their skills and knowledge of horticulture and environmental issues to Fort Bend residents.
The Fort Bend County Master Gardeners promote conservation and sustainable horticultural practices to residents of the county by:
- providing research-based gardening information,
- presenting educational programs for the both adults and children,
- communicating gardening information using articles, newsletters, phone and digital media, and
- maintaining demonstration gardens to determine the best plants for the local area.
