You may have heard of the Master Gardener Program for adults but did you know there is a program for youth too?

The mission of Junior Master Gardener programs is “To grow good kids by igniting a passion for learning, success and service through a unique gardening education.”

“JMG also inspires youths to be of service to others through service learning and leadership development projects, and rewards them with certification and recognition.”

The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension of Clark County will be having a JMG open house on Saturday, January 25, 2014 from 9 am to noon.

The Open House is an opportunity to see projects that Clark County JMG youth have been involved in during the past year. It will also be a good time to ask questions about the programs and to get information on how to register for the upcoming JMG series being sponsored by UNCE for youth beginning in February.

The Open House will be held at the UNCE Lifelong Learning Center, 8050 Paradise Road, LV, NV 89123

For more information you may call UNCE at 702-257-5523

or email Karyn Johnson at johnsonk@unce.unr.edu

Teachers, homeschoolers, other groups of at least five youth and a leader can begin a program. JMG programs are designed for youth in grades 3 to 5 for level One and grades 6 to 8 for level Two.

A view of materials and information on starting a Junior Master Gardener program can also be found on this National JMG website.
