Llano County Master Gardener Association
The next Llano County Master Gardener Certification Class will be in the early spring 2025.
Llano Master Gardeners are area residents who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. We are willing to learn and to help others. We are a fun group from a wide variety of backgrounds who enjoy working and learning together. We are a tribe of gardeners. Please join us!
To become a certificated Master Gardener, you need to complete 50 hours of education and 50 volunteer hours by September of the year following your classroom instruction. The 50 volunteer hours that you need can be acquired as soon you have signed up for and been accepted into the program. Master gardener projects abound! You can help maintain the public spaces at the Depot Garden, Llano Library and Pioneer Park. You can volunteer at our native plant sale in April and October. It benefits our scholarship fund. You can help run the concession stand at Lantex Theater on nights when Master Gardeners take it on.
Master Gardener training is fun and educational. Classes are taught by Texas AgriLife Extension specialists, agents, and local experts. In person classes will run every Tuesday morning for 6-7 weeks. You will love our field trips, which are also included in your education hours. We provide a minimum of 40 hours of in person instruction. Your remaining education hours can be found at our Master Gardener monthly meetings, other educational programs in our area, or online with AgriLife online classes or Aggie Horticulture on YouTube.
Mail your completed application and background check forms, along with your fee payment for our upcoming Master Gardener class. The cost of the certification program is $145.00. The fee includes training materials and admission fees involved in field trips. Installment payment plans are available.
Send your completed forms to Texas A & M Agrilife Extension Service - Llano County, 1447 East State Hwy 71 - Unit E, Llano TX 78643. Please make checks payable to Llano County Master Gardener.
