Master Gardener Advanced Training
(formerly Specialist)

Texas Master Gardener – Advanced Training graduates are a corps of Master Gardeners who support and expand the Bexar County educational programs of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service.

Advanced Training is designed to empower the Master Gardener with the knowledge and skills required to support designated programs or projects effectively, including administration of projects, training of Master Gardeners, clientele presentations, and/or applied research and demonstrations.

Master Gardeners with Advanced Training have received a minimum of 16 hours of subject matter training: formal classroom training, field trips and tours, mentoring by experts, and/or self-directed study. Following completion of the training requirement, each individual has completed a minimum of 20 hours of volunteer service in the designated program or project to obtain this title of Master Gardener – Advanced Training.
