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.

Spring Plant Sale News:
Thanks to everyone who took home plants on Friday, May 22 that were left from the Spring Plant Sale Inventory (everything was gone within 2 hours).
The SPS committee is so happy that they will have "forever homes". The website has also been updated with plant information in case you forget how to take of them.
Your generous donations are greatly appreciated to support our school and educational programs. If all goes well with this Covid-19 epidemic, we will be growing new plants in the fall for a spectacular 2021 Spring Plant Sale. Stay tuned for updates.
Thanks to all the Master Gardeners who made this possible.
