Junior Gardeners

Our Junior Gardener program began in 2009.  Through hands-on projects, school children are introduced to the many facets of gardening in hopes they will develop a love of gardening, an appreciation of nature’s beauty, and the value and protection of our natural resources.

Students in the Palm Beach County area participate in various NGC contests including the Smokey Bear/Woodsy Owl poster contest, Recycled Sculptures, and Poetry and Essays with an environmental theme.  Vegetable gardening, butterfly friendly gardens and native wildflower gardens are some of the projects supported by our youth groups.
