Youth Committee Chair 2021-2022:  Jeannette Michelson

Youth Garden Club

The Youth Garden Club meets monthly from October through May with children from the community at the Ocean County Library in Surf City. Children in grades three to six are welcome to attend. Garden Club members instruct the children in gardening techniques, flower arranging  and environmental topics that are especially relevant to coastal areas. The activities vary by season and holidays but fun is always included!

October 2021

The  Youth Garden Club  came to an abrupt halt in April 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Youth Garden Club was scheduled to resume in October 2021. Due to the resurgence of Covid-19 in New Jersey, the Ocean County Library has again closed its meeting rooms to outside groups.  When the Ocean County Library decides that it is safe to re-open its meeting rooms , the Youth Garden Club will resume.  Until then ,here are some “best of” photos from the 2019-2020 season to remind us of how refreshing and rewarding it is to work with children.
