Certified Master Gardeners will be answering questions at the downtown Farmers Market on the square on these Saturdays during the summer:  
June 8 / July 13 / August 10 / September 14. 
Stop by and visit with our volunteers about gardening.

Also, Master Gardeners are now available on Wednesdays, 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office.  Stop by 915 Whitmore Dr., Suite B and a Rockwall County Master Gardener will be on hand to research questions and provide gardening information.  If you can not come by in person, call 972-204-7660 or email rockwallmg@ag.tamu.edu and a Master Gardener will respond to you in a timely manner.  If the volunteers can not answer your questions on the spot, they will continue to research or will consult with a specialist that has expertise in the subject matter.
