The Permian Basin Master Gardeners is an educational service organization of volunteers trained by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. PBMG members are trained in horticulture, landscaping, soil improvement, water conservation, rainwater harvesting, greenhouse management, ground fire and drought protection, garden entomology, and many other topics of importance to West Texas Gardeners.

Their members offer services to residents of the Permian Basin through a wide variety of projects including:

- expert presentations, workshops, and other public education efforts;

- the annual Plant Sale at the Midland County Horseshoe Center;

- the annual Home and Garden Show at the Horseshoe Center;

- consultation at both the Ector and Midland County Extension Offices

- information available on this Website.


Gardening remains the Number One hobby in the United States. Here in the Permian Basin – in spite of climatic extremes and challenging soils – it is a highly popular pursuit. The secrets of working with this area’s special conditions are what Master Gardeners have spent long hours learning and sharing.
