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.
President’s Message-May, 2022
At dawn on April 9, Gonzales Master Gardeners were preparing for the Spring Plant Sale at Texas Heroes Square. GMG’s annual plant sale was to begin at 8:30 am. Saturday turned out to be a glorious sunny day. That fact plus a selection of interesting plants brought out many public buyers.,
Months of hard work by our members resulted in attractive annual and perennial plants, herbs and native plants grown at home or in our greenhouse. These were supplemented by a selection of nursery grown roses, succulents, house plants, hanging baskets, citrus trees, blackberry, and blueberries.
The plant sale and silent auction went well. The proceeds will help to support GMG educational programs with Gonzales grade school students, community adults and master gardener students. It also supports the greenhouse activities, the PACE building as well as general operating expenses.
The success of the plant sale is the result of numerous GMG volunteers that planned, grew plants purchased and transported plants, labeled and priced plants, collected silent auction items, helped the public and collected money.
We are truly grateful to all the GMG participants and thank you for a job well done.
Nick Wentworth, President
