Wildscape Area of AgriLife Office Garden

The AgriLife Extension Office Garden (AEGC) is the primary demonstration garden for the Comal Master Gardener (CMG) Association and the only garden totally funded by CMG. All plants in the garden are labeled with common and botanical names and most have a list of attributes on the label.  These demonstration gardens serve two purposes:  one to demonstrate what plants do well in the Texas Hill Country and to show case different ways to create gardens using high end items all the way down to cut up cedar logs.

The AEGC Office Garden is a large complex that contains several specialty gardens, including:

  • Antique Rose
  • Bird, Butterfly, Wildscape
  • Butterfly
  • Cactus
  • Deep Shade
  • Filtered Shade
  • Herb
  • Native Grass
  • Oak Motte
  • Rain Garden
  • Salvia
  • Texas Superstar®
  • Understory
  • Wildscape
Workdays are a great day to visit the AEGC Office Garden as volunteer workers will be happy to answer any questions you might have.

The original gardens were begun in 2005 but were left unattended for a period.  The restoration of the gardens began in 2009, with additional gardens being added incrementally ever since including the Rain Garden in 2017 and the Bird, Butterfly, Wildscape Garden in 2019.  Lindheimer Master Naturalists participate in planning and working the garden in conjunction with Comal Master Gardeners.

325 Resource Drive, New Braunfels (behind the Comal County Recycling Center off SH 46 west of loop 337.)
Workdays: The 1st and 3rd Tuesday mornings of the month.  Starting time is dependent on season and weather.
