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!

Spring Session

In this first session in a series of five, the children will learn the basics parts of plants, seed starting, propagation, composting, soils, and lots more. Hands-on fun in the classroom, outdoors, and at home, all designed to motivate the youth to achieve certification as a Junior Master Gardener and to be involved in community service.
