Master Gardener volunteers answer local residents’ North Texas gardening questions using research-based evidence, training from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, and experience gardening in North Texas. The service is free, and we are happy to help.

Our volunteers can assist you with questions about a wide range of gardening topics. In addition to research-based recommendations, our volunteers will provide resources to help you further. Garden Help Desk volunteers do not make on-site visits.
