Come join us for a special Master Gardener training class this summer designed for teachers, educators, and volunteers in support of Youth Gardening. Participants will become affiliated with the Texas Junior Master Gardener (JMG) Program, which engages children in novel, “hands-on” group and individual learning experiences that provide a love of gardening, develop an appreciation for the environment, and cultivate the mind. Participants use what they have learned to be of service to others. Examples of service projects initiated by JMG groups include growing produce for donation to food banks, community beautification projects, and class businesses generating funds for local charities.
The class will be held July 23-27, 2012, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., at the San Antonio Botanical Garden. Click here for an application.
