Thank you for your interest in becoming a Master Gardener for Texas A&M AgriLife Extension.

Master Gardeners are volunteers trained to assist the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension in reaching its mission to bring relevant, research-based information in horticulture to the public. Volunteers are members of the local community who are enthusiastic, willing to learn, and want to educate other residents of Harris County.

To be trained to become a Master Gardener Volunteer, you must first attend an Orientation. If selected, participants will be expected to complete the full 12-week training course and 60 Extension-approved service hours within 12 months.
