Becoming a Master Gardener
The mission of the Denton County Master Gardener Association is to educate Denton County residents about science-based, sustainable horticultural practices that promote development of healthy gardens, landscapes and communities. If you love gardening, want to learn more and would like to share your knowledge with others, the Denton County Master Gardener Association offers the opportunity to learn and to serve the community.
Who are Master Gardeners?
Master Gardeners are from all walks of life and volunteer on behalf of their state’s land grant university, Texas A&M University. What really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture. In exchange for their training, persons who become Texas Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers, working through their county’s Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office to provide horticultural-related information to their communities. Texas Master Gardeners are representatives of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, and as such, Master Gardeners follow the research-based recommendations of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension. The title “Texas Master Gardener” can be used by volunteers only when engaged in Extension-sponsored activities.
