Gardening 365

Who Are We?

Pasco County Master Gardeners are adult volunteers recruited and trained by county extension agents and University of Florida specialists to provide assistance in Extension home horticultural programs. Through this program, enthusiastic gardeners study such areas as botany, horticulture, soil science, and plant and insect identification and management.
The Florida Master Gardener Program is administered by the Cooperative Extension Service, a part of the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. This instruction gives the MGs a good background to prepare them for the wide variety of questions they may face as volunteers at plant clinics, giving talks, answering phones, and in the other duties they undertake. Master Gardeners volunteer 35 hours per year for Extension and take at least 10 hours of continuing education classes every year. This may seem like a lot, but many of our MGs volunteer twice that! The hours don't matter much when you're doing what you love.


Why Gardening 365?

To provide the visitors and residents of Pasco County with easy access to quality horticultural education, plants, tools, garden accessories, landscape and hardscape vendors and more in one location. To help them understand that gardening in Pasco/Central Florida is truly 365 days a year.
Even the youngest of our visitors will be able to take part in this event with educational booths, activities and a visit to the pumpkin patch.
The Pasco County Master Gardeners are looking forward to seeing you in at San Antonio City Park, 12200 Main Street in San Antonio, Florida “Gem of the Highlands” on Saturday, October 7, 2017.
