Description

The Junior Master Gardeners program will be a fun, hands-on learning experience, using a combination of individual and group projects, full of experiments and growing challenges!

The goal of the program is to motivate the children to achieve certification as a Junior Master Gardener and to be involved in community service. In order to achieve certification, a child must complete five sessions, with the last session looking at possible careers or options for the future. Students do not need to take each session consecutively, but must complete all five in order to achieve Junior Master Gardener status. This process may take two years or more, depending on the individual student. For more detailed information call 570-666-9003 or email susquehannamg@psu.edu. Teenagers may graduate and volunteer to come back to help teach the next group, and continue to learn!

Fall Session

The Fall Session promises to be full of experiments, growing challenges, and best of all, participants will be eating their fresh produce! The continuation and completion of “citizen scientists” for ‘Seed Savers Exchange’ and the 4-H Pumpkin Round-up project are also on the agenda. Possible careers or options for the future will also be explored.
