Description:
The Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech presents their Junior Master Gardener Youth Program starting on Wednesday, August 23, 2017 and continuing every Wednesday through November 15, 2017 from 4-6 pm at the Hahn Horticulture Garden and Pavilion.

The Junior Master Gardener program is a fun youth gardening program modeled after the highly successful adult Master Gardener program. It offers horticultural and environmental science education through creative gardening activities.

The program includes 26 classes over fall and spring. Classes will be led by trained Master Gardener volunteers with support from Hahn Horticulture Garden and Extension staff (generally 3 or more adults for each class). Hahn Horticulture Garden will provide garden space for some of the gardening projects.

Participants in this program will have the opportunity to become certified Junior Master Gardeners through hands-on learning, community service, and leadership projects. Youth will be encouraged to work towards JMG certification, though this is not required. Details about certification will be explained at the first meeting.

The cost to participate is $50.00 per participant.

The program is open to all county youth (4-H and non 4-H members) in grades 3 through 5.

The Spring dates will be announced following the fall sessions, but will also be on Wednesdays
