Junior Master Gardeners preparing the garden for planting!

Searching for fun, educational outdoor gardening activities for your children this fall? Visit one of University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Junior Master Gardener™ program’s Open Houses and enter to win one of two family 4-packs to FLIPnOUT. If you register your child for the gardening series at the Open House, score a second entry!

At each open house, you will view projects and collect programmatic information on the upcoming fall sessions which begin in September. Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., speak with Junior Master Gardener Ambassadors and experience a make-and-take project and free tours of the children’s demonstration gardens. The Junior Master Gardener program offers your child leadership skills, safety with tools, community service and more!

The first Open House will be held in the north part of the valley on August 20 at the Research Center and Demonstration Orchard’s Children’s Garden located at 4600 Horse Road, North Las Vegas, Nev.

The second Open House will be held in the south part of the valley on August 27 at the Lifelong Learning Center located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev. Snacks and drinks will be offered at both locations.

Registration for the fall sessions will be available at the Open Houses. The Junior Master Gardener program is open to all children ages 7-12. The 8-session per semester class fee is $20. Classes are held twice monthly on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
