Past and Anticipated Community Involvement of Master Gardener Trainees
As one of four focus areas for Texas Cooperative Extension, community development is an integral part of the Extension system and should be incorporated into all programming efforts. The purpose of this study was to determine if the Master Gardener program affected community development. Descriptive statistics were used to compare participants' past experiences with their anticipated experiences after completion of the Master Gardener program. Results indicated that community development activities were being completed, but the extent and type of development could not be measured. Suggestions are provided to enhance and use the community development opportunities related to Extension programs.
