Youth Garden Clubs

Each month, from September to May, Garden Club members meet with fourth- and fifth-graders at  All Saint’s Regional Catholic school to teach gardening techniques and flower arranging.
Beginning February 2019, the Garden Club launched a second Youth Garden Club that meets at the LBI branch of the Ocean County Library  located in Surf City. Children in grades three through six from the community are welcome to attend.

Library Youth Club

The Library Youth Group celebrated Earth Day by getting a jump on spring planting. First, the children decorated their old fashioned tin containers while they learned  about the history of Earth Day. Then the group planted  Sweet Alyssums, Pansies and Snapdragons for a colorful spring container garden. It was a little messy but the results were beautiful!

All Saint’s Youth Group

Since we met in the days right before Easter this month, the All Saints Youth Group made beautiful Easter flower centerpieces to decorate their families’ tables.  On decorative cards, the children wrote Easter messages to their families, which embellished their flower arrangements.  When we finish each time we meet, each student stands up to reveal their arrangement’s name as she/he tell us about experience of making the arrangement.
