Youth

Junior Garden Clubs

Each month, from September to May, Garden Club members meet with fourth- and fifth-graders at a local school to teach gardening techniques and flower arranging.

These young gardeners have grown lettuce and spinach in an outdoor garden, planted dish and succulent gardens, and made beautiful flower arrangements to take home. All projects are hands-on–albeit, often dirty hands! If you’re interested in participating, please contact Jennifer Schwab.
