Welcome to the Hopkins County Master Gardener Website. The Hopkins County Master Gardeners are volunteers who work with the Texas Agrilife Extension Service to improve gardening skills throughout the community. We share our gardening knowledge through community service and outreach, gardener training and educational programs.

From our Secretary

Good morning,

 I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.  First, thanks to Wyvonne for opening her home again to us this year for our December meeting.  It is always so much fun and good food.  The past year our field trips to  the  Barking Cat Farm, Blueberry Farm, and Scarborough Haven all provided us with adventure and learning.   As we look forward to 2018 we have lots to be excited about with our new group of MGs and our new officers.  We also begin our monthly gardening columns in the News Telegram.  

 Several of you requested that I forward the process and guidelines for the articles and the monthly signup sheet.  (See attachments.)  I am also attaching  a draft of the December meeting minutes and an updated roster.  Please review and let me know of any needed corrections.

 Reminder that Jon is collecting our 2018 dues.  ($15 MGs & $10 Associates)

 Our next meeting is Thursday, January 25, 2018.
