Gardening opportunities grow with warm weather
SAN ANTONIO -- A number of free or low-cost horticultural education opportunities will be available in Bexar County and nearby in early 2012 and beyond, said David Rodriguez, Texas AgriLife Extension Service agent for horticulture, Bexar County.
“AgriLife Extension and the Bexar County Master Gardeners association will present programs, seminars, and other educational presentations and demonstrations in 2012 on various topics from vegetable gardening to landscaping and selecting, planting, and pruning fruit trees,” Rodriguez said. “The vast majority of our community educational programs are free or at a nominal cost.”
He said to learn more about 2012 horticultural and gardening opportunities available through AgriLife Extension and the agency’s Bexar County Master Gardener volunteer program, visit http://bexar-tx.tamu.edu.
“We will have the rodeo tomato and the Texas Superstar red-bluebonnet available for sale at the Master Gardener booth during the run of the San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo during February,” Rodriguez added.
Rodriguez will do a “Live Garden Chat” for mysa.com from 11 a.m. to noon Feb. 21 and March 27. He also can be heard from 7-10 a.m. each Saturday morning on the WOAI 1200 “Garden Show with Bill Rohde.”
