Colorado County members of the Bluebonnet Master Gardener Association are extending an invitation for people to learn more about the master gardener program.
The Bluebonnet Master Gardener Association is a four-county chapter spanning Austin, Colorado, Fayette, and Washington counties. Master Gardeners are volunteers, trained by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension in research-based horticulture including soils, water conservation, composting, entomology, plant pathology and related subjects.
As County Extension Service volunteers, they give to the community by extending research-based knowledge and providing solutions in one-to-one problem solving, in demonstration gardens and educational programs. What really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture.
The next Master Gardener certification training course will begin Jan. 12, 2021, in Colorado County. It is an intensive 14-week course with both classroom instruction and field trips. More information on the training class can be found at https://txmg.org/bluebonnet/.
There will be a meeting for those interested in learning more on Tuesday, Jan. 5, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Colorado County Extension Office at 316 Spring St. in Columbus. For more information, call 979-732-2082.
