Angelina County Volunteer Master Gardeners now accepting applications for 2019 class


The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Angelina County is hosting the 2019 Angelina County Master Gardener Intern Class training beginning Jan. 10 at 1 pm.

The Texas Master Gardener program is designed to train volunteers to educate and engage local, county residents in the implementation of research-based horticultural and environmental practices to create sustainable gardens, landscapes and communities in coordination with AgriLife Extension.

Applications are required and will be available by emailing or dropping by the Angelina County Extension Office at 2201 S. Medford Dr. in Lufkin.

The training will be Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from Jan 10 thru late March.

The fee is $150, and the class will be working with a local school garden project.

If you love gardening, want to learn more and would like to share knowledge with others, this volunteer program provides opportunity for such a person.
