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.   

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.
