Registration set for Master Gardeners program

The Gonzales Master Gardeners are pleased to announce registration for the fall 2011 Texas Master Gardener Class. Classes will be held every other Tuesday morning from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm at the Odd Fellows Lodge in Gonzales beginning September 6 and ending in May. If you love gardening and plants, but find that you nev- er run out of questions about why things turn out the way they do; if you enjoy being around other people who love plants and gardening; and if you have been look- ing for that special oppor- tunity to serve your com- munity by sharing your love

of plants, then you are prob- ably just waiting to join the Gonzales Master Gardeners in becoming a Texas Master Gardener. Gonzales Master Gardeners belong to a vol- unteer program sponsored by Texas AgriLife Extension where they received qual- ity educational instruction in horticulture and then service as a teaching outreach and community service program of Texas AgriLife Extension. The Gonzales Master Gardeners offer a compre- hensive class tailored to local conditions and to the interests of the community. The program starts with a class on soils in which stu- dents learn about soils types,

From there, the program moves to cover a wide range of topics from roses and native plants to fruits and nuts. Instruction is offered by specialists in their field and many of them are college professors and extension specialists. Stu- dents also enjoy a range of field trips to botanical and horticultural facilities where they can observe principles they have learned put into practice. In return for this exceptional educational op- portunity, students join other Gonzales Master Garden- ers in a unique program of
