Website and/or Calendar Links
Do you know there is a garden in your garbage? Those bits and pieces of fruits and vegetables that end up in the compost pile or garbage disposal can yield a garden. Garbage gardens are great indoor projects for kids.
Learn how to turn celery, carrots and other vegetables into a new garden. Children will learn the basics of gardening, plant a small take home garden in a container and have a nutritious snack. 4-H members with projects in Vegetable Gardening A-D may want to attend and create an exhibit for Vegetable Gardening Display. It is eligible for county and state exhibits. Check out the possibilities!
Registration: For further information or to pre-register, please call the Extension office at the number provided. Pre-registration is required by June 11, 2019. Space is limited.
