Texas Master Gardener Program

The Master Gardener Program is a volunteer development program offered by Texas AgriLife Extension Service and is designed to increase the availability of horticultural information and improve the quality of life through horticultural projects. Program objectives are implemented through the training and “employing” local volunteers, known as Master Gardeners. They aid Extension by conducting school garden projects; answering telephone requests for horticultural information; establishing and maintaining demonstration gardens; working with special audiences in the community; and designing and implementing community improvement projects, as well as coordinating Master Gardener projects.

Program Objectives
The objectives of the Master Gardener Programs include:

  • to expand the capabilities of Texas AgriLife Extension Service to disseminate horticultural information to individuals and groups in the community
  • to develop and enhance community projects related to horticulture, including: horticultural therapy projects, community gardens, and demonstration gardens
  • to develop a Master Gardener network to assist in administration of the local Master Gardener Program
  • to enhance 4-H programs through the establishment of 4-H horticultural clubs and Junior Master Gardener groups
