The Denton County Master Gardener Association is a volunteer program designed to grow horticultural information throughout Denton County facilitated by the Texas A& M College of Agriculture AgriLife Extension Service. To become a Denton County Master Gardener, a participant attends 70 hours of instruction conducted under the guidance of the Denton County extension agent in horticulture, then shares that knowledge by donating 70 hours of volunteer service back to the community.
