Adult Education

Adult Education workshops at the Herff Farm occur as part of the Farmers Market at the Cibolo, Saturdays from 8:30am to 12:30pm, March through September.  These workshops are free to attend!

Our expert speakers include Texas Master Gardeners, horticulture business owners, and scientists.  Many of these workshops also include a hands-on component that will help you to get the most out of your gardening efforts.  In addition to the free scheduled presentations, a visit to our Inspiration Garden will yield a friendly anytime talk with one of our knowledgeable Garden Volunteers who work to keep the demonstration garden blooming.  Check out our calendar of events for the most up-to-date listing of workshops we offer.

In addition, several times a year, we offer Festivals that cover a wide range of sustainability education topics. Check back often for calendar updates.

Gardening workshops and festivals will teach you how to:

  • Create Garden Beds
  • Grow Plants from Seed
  • Fertilize Plants
  • Control Pests
  • Install Drip Irrigation
  • Save Seeds
  • Create a Compost Pile
  • Use Worms to Produce Fertilizer

  • And Much More. . .
