Liberty County Master Gardener Association 2019 Classes

LIBERTY October 25, 2018 - The Liberty County Master Gardener Association announces that open registration for the 2019 Master Gardener certification classes has begun and will be open until the class is full.  Now is the time to pick up the registration packet at the AgriLife Extension Office, 501 Palmer Avenue, Liberty, between 8 AM and 5 PM Monday through Friday. The sooner one completes the registration process and begins the payment process the sooner and more secure your position in the class.  There will be a limited number allowed in this upcoming series of classes so get the registration information returned soon.

 The classes for Master Gardener certification will begin January 8, 2019 and run through May 25, 2019. The classes will generally be held the third week of each month on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, along with a few Saturday events. 

The Texas Master Gardener program is a partnership with a twofold purpose.  First, it is designed to provide an intensive training in the many diverse aspects of horticulture for local residents as a direct benefit to the residents themselves.  Secondly, the program is also designed to train participants so they can cooperate with the staff of the Liberty County AgriLife Extension Service in carrying out educational programs and activities that address horticultural issues of concern to county residents.  

During the 5-month training period from January 8, 2019 till May 25, 2019, the participants will receive over 50 hours of classroom and laboratory training and activities in various topics such as: Plant Growth and Development; Plant Propagation; Earthkind Gardening; Growing Fruits and Nuts; Growing Vegetables and Herbs; Home Landscape Design; Plant Selection and Care; Pruning; Rainwater Harvesting and Irrigation Methods; Integrated Pest Management; and more.  Over 15 different specialists will be the speakers/presenters for the sessions.  Hands on experiences will be provided as well in topics such as garden design, greenhouse management and maintenance, plant propagation, rain barrel construction. Field trips will complement the training.

The registration packets need to be returned no later than December 11, 2018 when there will be a series of short come-and-go mandatory information meetings between 5:30 pm and 7:00 pm at the AgriLife Extension Office, 501 Palmer Avenue, Liberty.  The cost of the total 5-month course is $200 payable in increments, with the final payment due January 3, 2019.  For more information contact the Liberty County Master Gardener Association at their email or call the AgriLife Extension Office at 936-334-3230.
