The urban nature of the county is reflected in the educational programming and kinds of assistance, that our Horticulture Program is able to offer.
Santa Fe Extension Master Gardeners
The Santa Fe Extension Master Gardeners are a key component of our horticultural outreach. These volunteers are trained to provide science-based horticultural advice to the general public through various means, from their Hotline to working on demonstration garden projects and many other volunteer opportunities in between.
Xeriscape refers to landscaping with reduced, efficient irrigation. The keys to successful xeriscape include proper plant selection, good mulching and efficient irrigation. In addition we support the Xeriscape Council of New Mexico's International Water Conservation and Xeriscape conference.
We are available to:
- Speak to groups on various horticultural topics
- Are open to the public for information on home and landscape gardening, including plant selection; pest and disease identification; vegetable and fruit production; and more
- We also encourage the greens industry to use us for accurate problem diagnosis and control recommendations
