4-H Gardening is a fun way for young people, ages 9–18, to learn how to grow a vegetable garden! 4-H provides seeds, plants, and training. Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteers and garden volunteers will be available (via online/phone/written resources) to  answer questions and offer advice!

While the structure of our traditional mini gardening program will look different this year to adjust for no face-to-face, we are optimistic we can still offer participants a great learning experience and an opportunity to grow gardens!

4-H Mini-Gardening:  youth plant a 10×12 foot vegetable garden at home and keep a garden journal. 4-H provides the seeds and plants for the garden. Each child plants the same vegetables.

4-H Container Gardening: for youth who do not have a 10×12 foot space to garden. Each child grows a variety of vegetables in containers and maintains a garden journal.

4-H Advanced Gardening youth plant gardens at home, and grow at least 4 different vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Gardeners also mulch, border and decorate their gardens, and maintain a garden journal. (Limited to previous Mini Garden participants). 

Thank you to Extension Master Gardener volunteers Pat Newcomer and Kate Raevuori-Wilson for overseeing this program!
