Junior Master Gardener

I became a certified Junior Master Gardener instructor/leader today. The Alabama Extension office had a meeting for interested individuals today in Fairhope.
I am a 4H leader and homeschool teacher and hope to bring this information and program to our 4H club.
The program brings gardening and science into the classroom and afterschool programs in addition to coordinating with other groups (scouts for example).
The student webpages can be found at http://www.jmgkids.us. Take a look through and see if its something you’d be interested in bringing to your community, then contact your local extension office and to get started.
We did some projects during class to get an idea of other fund ways to teach about gardening. We made sunhats from newspaper, a chia pet, and drew a “hamburger” plant.
The program has its own curriculum that you can order for your program or if you become a 4H club, you have access to the curriculum. I encourage you to look into it.
