Master Gardeners' monthly meeting this Thursday

The Liberty County Master Gardeners Association’s monthly meeting is Thursday evening at the AgriLife Extension office in Liberty. The potluck supper and meeting is open to anyone interested in gardening and horticulture, not just Master Gardeners. The Liberty County Master Gardeners Association meets on the second Thursday of every month. They welcome anyone interested to attend their programs and consider becoming either what is called an associate member or perhaps even a fully certified Master Gardener. According to the statewide organization’s website, what really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their specialized training in horticulture. The full program offers a minimum of 50 hours of instruction that covers lawn care, landscaping, ornamental trees, shrubs, insects, disease, weed management and much more. In exchange for that specialized training, those who become Master Gardeners will then contribute some time as volunteers, working through their local extension office. However, there are many people who would just like to gain more knowledge about gardening but can not commit the time it takes to become a certified Master Gardner. Either way, you can learn more about gardening while enjoying the company of others with similar interests by attending the monthly meetings of the Liberty County Master Gardener’s Association. Thursday’s program will be on worm castings or excrement that the gardeners say makes really good composting. Monthly gatherings begin with a potluck dinner at 6:30 p.m. followed by an informative program and meeting at 7 in the extension office, 501 Palmer Avenue in Liberty. For information, call the Liberty County AgriLife Extension office during business hours at 936-334-3230.
