Educational gardening program offered for children
Junior Master Gardeners offers a great learning experience
If you live in the north part of the valley and are searching for fun, educational activities for your children this spring, check out University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Junior Master Gardener™ program. Beginning in February, your child can experience hands-on gardening activities while learning about plants, water, soil, veggies and more, with an end product they can eat! In addition, your child can learn leadership skills, service, safety with tools, community service and much more from this 4-H program.
The Junior Master Gardener program is open to all children ages 7-12. The 8-session per semester class fee is $52. Classes are held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. twice-monthly on Saturdays at the Research Center and Demonstration Orchard (4600 Horse Road, North Las Vegas, Nev.) beginning Feb. 7, 2015.
