who we areThe Texas Master Gardener Program is an educational activity offered by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension of Texas A&M University System. It is designed to increase the availability of horticultural information and extend horticultural projects throughout the community. It provides invaluable training and educational opportunities.

Persons who become Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers, working through their AgriLIFE Extension office to provide horticultural-related information to their communities.

what we doThe McLennan County Master Gardeners have many projects that they have contributed to the community such as the Extension Office Shade Garden, the Texas Superstar Garden at the Carleen Bright Arboretum, and Trailside Gardens to name a few. In addition we volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, the HOT Gardening Coalition as well as maintain a flower pot recycling program and conduct an annual plant sale. We also have classes at elementary schools.
