Allison Watkins, County Extension Agent – Horticulture
At Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, we are excited about the growing interest in home horticulture among Tom Green County residents!
To encourage local interest in environmental stewardship and home gardening, we offer a wide spectrum of literature and practical resources, host workshops and event throughout the Concho Valley area, and coordinate with the Concho Valley Master Gardener volunteer program.
Tom Green County’s Horticulture program holds free or low-cost seminars on gardening, landscaping and food preservation topics at various time throughout the year. These seminars help the public get more productivity and joy from their gardens, troubleshoot problems and develop environmentally sensitive gardening techniques.
Tom Green Horticulture works closely offering programs, workshops and seminars with the Master Gardeners, the People-Plant Connection, local schools and the City of San Angelo as well as Garden Clubs and other entities wanting in-depth horticultural programs.
