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 six 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 six 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 email@example.com. Teenagers may graduate and volunteer to come back to help teach the next group, and continue to learn!
During the Spring session, the children will learn about soil and compost basics, worm composting, seed starting, garden planning and preparation, greenhouse growing, season extenders, habitats for birds and pollinators, and basic botany. You will want to register soon as the size limit for this class is 12!
