4-H Mini-Gardening

— Written By

4-H Mini-Gardening is fun way for young people, ages 9 – 18, to learn how to grow a vegetable garden! In this contest, participants grow a 10 x 12 foot vegetable garden at home, and keep a garden journal. 4-H provides seeds and plants, and training. Extension Master Gardeners visit the gardens twice during the summer to offer advice, judge the gardens, and answer questions. Winners are announced at the Mini-Garden Covered Dish Supper and Awards Program, held in August.
