The Gonzales Master Gardeners are people who love gardening and want to learn more about horticulture. Master Gardeners enjoy sharing their plant knowledge with others and promoting the love of gardening.
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 the Texas AgriLife Extension office to provide horticulture-related information to the community.
