I am a novice at organic gardening but willing and eager to learn. I would love to take some classes. I also hear lots about Texas Master Gardeners and would like to know how to become one. I live in Parker County.

Also, what books and other resources do I need to acquire to gain the best information about organics, besides continuing to check this wonderful website and resource.

Yes, a Master Gardener manual is a good reference tool. :) The one for Texas, however, suggests the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. :( I was actually able to purchase one without taking the course, although I am sure the course would be more educational, I would not agree with their advocating toxic substances. My goal is to assist in the creation of an organic MG program. I believe it will be a great success. :D

It would be really nice to have an "Organic Master Gardener" program.

Nadine - y'know what is really needed 9and may well exist for all i know) is a complete list of organic alternatives for each chemical product along with about a one page, simple, no big words description of what it is about the chemical product that is bad.

I have noticed that if you ask for organics at some stores they look at you like you are slightly dangerous and avoid sudden movements near you :roll:

This would be a good thing - especially if it included links to studies etcetera - I'm thinking e-book.

If they looked at me like that, I'd just smile sympathetically and go to one of the advertisers here on the board. (Or you could look at them like this: :shock: and run, don't walk, out of the store -screaming optional). :lol:

What I have found for you is not exactly a list of the bad things with a list of the acceptable things you should use in place of it, but...

Then a list of things and what they are good for is here:

Hope this helps! :wink:
