Youth Lawn Mowing Clinic

WICHITA — K-State Research & Extension, in partnership with the Derby Recreation Commission, is excited to announce plans for the upcoming 2024 Youth Lawn Mowing Clinic.  The clinic, scheduled for Wednesday, March 13th, 2024, is moving to a new location this year and will be held at the Oaklawn Activity Center, 4904 S. Clifton in Wichita. Youth in grades 5-9 who are looking for a way to earn summer income and gain lawn care knowledge are encouraged to attend.

The clinic will acquaint attendees with the different types of lawn grasses that grow in our area and how to properly care for each type. In addition, the training will provide youth with information on lawn mower safety, lawn mower maintenance, and the business skills necessary to run a successful lawn mowing business. Each youth will also receive a lawn care information packet, business cards, and safety equipment.

At the conclusion of each clinic, a short graduation ceremony will be held and each participant will receive a certificate of completion. In addition, all graduates will also be awarded $10 in order to support establishing their lawn mowing business.

Two sessions of the Youth Lawn Mowing Clinic are being offered: 

The cost is $10.00 to register through March 2nd, or $15.00 after that date. Space is limited so please register early, as classes do fill up. Register online at www.sedgwick.ksu.edu/events.

The Youth Lawn Mowing Clinic is sponsored by K-State Research & Extension - Sedgwick County, the Derby Recreation Commission, and the Sedgwick County Extension Master Gardener Volunteers.
