New Horticulture Agent

The news is out! We have a new Horticulture Agent for Travis County! Daphne Richards comes to Austin from El Paso where she has served as Hort Agent for the past 9 years.

While in El Paso Daphne provided leadership for the Master Gardener volunteer program and was active in the media with a weekly radio program, contributions to El Paso Magazine and an online gardening newsletter. She is especially interested in environmental issues including water conservation.

Daphne received a BA in Botany from the University of Texas and a MS in Horticulture from Texas A&M. Her enthusiasm, training, experience and hands on knowledge of both Extension work and leading a Master Gardener program make her a great fit for Travis County to lead our horticulture program to new levels.

Please join me in welcoming Daphne to Travis County!
