Training course

Pictured is Lanny Dreesen (retired Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Urban Forester and Professor) conducting an outdoor learning exercise on urban forestry. The next Galveston County Master Gardener training course will begin in February 2020. The course curriculum will include a diverse variety of classroom and outdoor learning activities.

Gardeners by nature are great people and our Galveston County Master Gardeners volunteers exemplify the best in unselfishly providing volunteer service that benefits residents throughout the county.

The Galveston County Master Gardener program was started in 1982, and we are celebrating our 37th anniversary this year.

Dr. William Johnson is a horticulturist with the Galveston County Office of Texas AgriLife Extension Service, The Texas A&M System. Visit his website at
