The Texas A&M AgriLife® Extension Service in Fort Bend County, along with the Fort Bend County Master Gardeners, present Grow Your Own, a six-class program on creating a productive edible garden in the home landscape. Participants will learn how to start a garden, the keys to success, what to plant and when, and how to reap the benefits of year-round food production in Fort Bend County.
|In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Fort Bend County is cancelling all reservations for the use of County buildings through May. Since the Grow Your Own series of classes is held in a County building, the local Texas A&M AgriLife Extension and Fort Bend Master Gardeners are cancelling the “Warm Season Vegetables” class on Saturday, March 21, and the “Vegetable Pests and Diseases” class on April 18. We are considering rescheduling dates for these two classes and you can look on our website on this page for up-to-date information.
We hope the rest of the Grow Your Own scheduled classes can resume as planned in September. May you and your family stay well.
Please register in advance – $15 per class or $60 for the entire series if payment is made in advance of the first class on February 15. Advanced payments must be received two days prior to the start of each class to ensure enrollment confirmation.
All classes will combine indoor and outdoor lessons, and be held from 9:00 am – 11:00 am, as follows:
