Junior Master Gardener classes begin in September

Posted 8/23/2013

Have you been searching for fun, educational activities for your children this fall? Check out Cooperative Extension’s Junior Master Gardener (JMG) program, a division of 4-H. Registration for the fall session is being held during September. Your child will experience hands-on gardening and environmental activities while learning about plants, water, soil, veggies and more! They will learn to garden for healthy foods with an end product they can eat. In addition, your child will learn leadership skills, service, safety with tools and much more.

All children, ages 7-12 are invited to attend the program. The class meets on Saturday’s, twice monthly from 9 a.m. to Noon. The fee is $50 per semester. If you live in the north part of the valley, there are Saturday JMG classes at the Clark County Center for Sustainable Urban Food Production (Horse Road and Decatur). If you live in the south part of the valley, the Saturday JMG classes are held at the Lifelong Learning Center’s Outdoor Education Center (I-215 and Windmill Lane). At the end of the completed fall semester, your child will receive a certificate and pin, plus an invitation to attend JMG Part II offered in the spring.

For more information and to register, please email Karyn Johnson or call 702-257-5523. For more information, visit the nation-wide JMG website.
