Look for their table at the Gus Garcia Recreation Center, 1201 E Rundberg Ln, Austin, TX 78753, from 10 am to 1 pm.

In addition to sharing their experience and training, several publications are on hand for you to review or take with you.

What is a Plant Clinic?

The Master Gardener Plant Clinic is a traveling help desk with Travis County Master Gardeners available to answer questions on various horticultural issues. You can find a Master Gardener at the Stronger Austin Day. You can also catch the Master Gardeners on regular dates with the Texas Farmer’s Market at Mueller and Texas Farmer’s Market at Lakeline. Most plant clinics also offer an educational activity for children.

Who are Master Gardeners?

Master Gardeners are volunteers for the Travis County AgriLife Extension service. In order to become a Master Gardener, each individual receives extensive horticultural training. Master Gardeners use their training and subsequent commitment for continuing education to help Austin area residents with their gardening questions.
