Pasco County Master Gardeners
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. 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.
Vendor Sale & Garden Festival
Date: Oct 3, 2020

On October 3, 2020, the UF/IFAS Extension Pasco County Master Gardeners will present their Gardening 365 festival at the San Antonio City Park at 12200 Main Street in San Antonio, Florida.
The Gardening 365 festival is the Pasco Master Gardeners annual fundraiser. It includes vendors offering plants and garden accessories, educational seminars and exhibits, children’s activities and more all in one location. The theme for this year’s festival is “The Best of Pasco at Gardening 365.”
The Master Gardener hub is where we provide science-based answers to your horticultural questions, as well as information regarding the services the Pasco County Extension Office offers to the public.
The funds raised at Gardening 365 help to provide on-going seminars, materials, demonstration gardens throughout Pasco County, assistance with community gardens, and the Butterflies and Blooms exhibit.
The Pasco County Master Gardeners look forward to seeing you in San Antonio City Park, 12200 Main Street in San Antonio, Florida “Gem of the Highlands”. Based on previous year’s numbers we expect approximately 1,500 visitors.
The Gardening 365 festival will show the public that gardening in Pasco/Central Florida is truly 365 days a year of fun.
