Youth Programs and Resources
In School Presentations
Our Youth Education Committee primarily focuses on in-classroom gardening presentations for elementary school students. The presentations are requested through the 4-H Department. We have not yet determined if requests will re-open with new presentations in 2021.
School Gardening Programs
Our staff and Master Gardeners can assist with the implementation of school garden programs. We can provide technical assistance for starting gardens. Assistance with delivering programs by our Master Gardeners is assessed on a case-by-case basis and is dependent on volunteer availability.
Youth Lawn Mowing Clinic
The Youth Lawn Mowing Clinic is held each March during Spring Break, usually on Wednesday, with a morning and afternoon session. The class is targeted at youth in the 5th-9th grades. The sessions cover basic lawn information, lawn mowing safety, lawn mower maintenance, and how to start a lawn mowing business.
