Becoming a Master Gardener Volunteer

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service logo


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 training course and 60 Extension-approved service hours within 12 months.

Thank you for your interest in our program. We will have the 2021 schedule set in the spring. Classes will likely be in the fall, not the summer and done online.  There is a required Orientation that occurs a few months before the start of class. That is where we will discuss the program, expectations, and offer applications. Please check back for updates.
