The Master Gardeners of Henderson County we are an educational and volunteer program offered by the AgriLife Extension of the Texas A&M University System. The program is designed to increase the availability of horticultural information and extend horticultural projects throughout the community. These goals are implemented through the training and employment of local volunteers known as Master Gardeners.
The Master Gardeners in Henderson County provides invaluable training and educational opportunities. Professional and amateur horticulturists, as well as persons simply seeking up-to-date horticultural information, can advance their gardening expertise, and gain self-satisfaction through volunteer efforts. The volunteer aspect of the Master Gardener program allows individuals to dedicate their time and talents to enhancing the quality of life for citizens in their community using the science and art of horticulture.
