SAN ANTONIO -- The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is taking applications for participants in its adult Bexar County Master Gardeners volunteer association, said David Rodriguez, AgriLife Extension agent for horticulture for Bexar County.

Applications are currently being accepted for Master Gardener Class No. 57, with the application deadline set for Monday, Feb. 25. Class size will be limited to 35-40 individuals. Classes will be conducted each Wednesday from noon until 4 p.m. beginning March 6 and concluding May 29. The classes will be held at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Center Room located at 2255 Cherry Ridge Road, Suite 208, in San Antonio.

Classes provide at least 50 hours of instruction relating to botany and plant physiology, entomology, plant identification and pathology, xeriscaping, landscaping, turfgrass maintenance and diseases, natural resources, urban forestry, water conservation, growing ornamental plants, herbs and vegetables, pruning, soils and composting, and growing fruits and nuts.

“Those completing the program will be asked to complete at least 50 or more volunteer hours in support of both AgriLife Extension youth and adult horticultural education outreach during the first year,” Rodriguez said.

“Volunteer opportunities range from staffing plant clinics or displays to speaking to local groups, conducting workshops, helping establish community garden projects, or working with 4-H youth,” he added.

Acceptance is based on the application and the willingness to volunteer. A fee of $220 is charged for training materials and payable in full at the first class meeting. A background check is also required on all applicants and will be done on the first day of class.

A Master Gardener class application form can be found on the website for AgriLife Extension in Bexar County at http://bexar-tx.tamu.edu under the Ag and Natural Resources tab, then Horticulture and Bexar County Master Gardener.
