Wade Hibler provides timely educational information related to lawn and garden topics each weekday morning on KBEY 103.9 FM Radio Picayune.
Wade is a retired agricultural extension agent with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension service, where he served for 34 years (22 of those years in Burnet County). Upon his retirement, the Board of Regents at Texas A&M University awarded him the title of County Extension Agent-Emeritus. The retired agent takes great pride in working with the Master Volunteer groups such as the Highland Lakes Master Gardeners and Master Naturalists.
So, what is a Picayune Garden? Wade tells us “The Picayune Garden is a unique place. Many have asked me where is it. Well, the Picayune Garden is everywhere.” There is The Helping Center garden, the Bluebonnet Methodist Preschool garden, and gardens at elementary schools, nursing facilities, and many others. Picayune Gardens are anywhere Wade has shared a hand to make these gardens a better place for all to visit and learn something. In the Picayune Garden, you will find information on lawn care, vegetable gardening, flower beds and fruit tree care — just to name a few.
Visiting the garden is simple. Send your questions by visiting KBEYFM.com and clicking on the “Ask Wade” button.

Wade is married to Ellen Ely, who serves as senior pastor of First United Methodist Church of Marble Falls. His favorite things to do are fishing, hunting, and playing with his grandson Jordan every time he gets the chance.
