Horticulture – Master Gardeners / LEAF-PRO

Here is a video of the AgriLife, Learn Grow Eat & Go program conducted with the help of our Master Gardeners and New Waverly ISD.

  • Do you have an interest in gardening and sharing your knowledge?

Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. They are enthusiastic, willing to learn and to help others, and able to communicate with diverse groups of people.

What really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture. In exchange for their training, persons who become Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers, working through their cooperative Extension office to provide horticultural information and education back to their communities. If you are interested in becoming an Extension Master Gardener, contact your AgriLife Extension office.

  • In Walker County, our training classes begin each year in January.  Although we start training early in the year, the class is usually full long before fall arrives.  Contact us early if you would like to join this group of energetic community volunteers!
  • Information on how you can be a part of the Walker County Master Gardeners can be obtained from the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, Walker County office at (936) 435-2426.

The Walker County Master Gardeners maintain a Facebook page with additional information regarding their educational activities and educational events.
