About Us

The Texas Master Gardener program is an educational activity offered by the Texas Agricultural Extension, the Texas A&M University System.  The program is designed to increase the availability of horticultural information and extend horticultural projects throughout the community.  These goals are implemented through the training and employment of local volunteers known as Master Gardeners. 

Master Gardener volunteers are recruited and trained by land grant universities throughout the United States and Canada. Local programs are coordinated by horticulture advisors at county cooperative extension offices with a primary goal to answer the myriad of questions from home gardeners. Master Gardeners extend to their communities the benefits of horticulture research developed at the University level.

The Master Gardener program provides invaluable training and educational opportunities.  Professional and amateur horticulturists, as well as persons simply seeking up-to-date horticultural information, can advance their gardening expertise, plus gain self-satisfaction through volunteer efforts.

Denton County Master Gardeners are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for the citizens of our community using the science and art of horticulture.

Services we provide the community are:

  • Develop and enhance community programs related to horticulture.  Depending on community needs, these may be environmental improvement activities, horticultural therapy projects or community and school gardens programs.



  • On-site Consultation.

  • Speakers Bureau

  • Junior Master Gardener program.

  • Habitat for Humanity

  • Lewisville Independent School District Outdoor Learning Area
