Junior Master Gardners

Welcome to our garden!

Our JMG program is Level I for 3rd, 4th & 5th Graders.  We meet on Wednesdays this year to work in our gardens and learn more about science & horticulture as well as building leadership skills.  The seed for our JMG Knightcrawlers garden club was planted in the fall of 2003 with the help of a wonderful Master Gardener named Al Norris. I had been in school administration for a while and was sorely missing the classroom. Leading JMG gave me the “teaching fix” for which I was longing. Now almost 10 years later, this JMG leader along with a great many Knightcrawlers have grown through this wonderful horticulture and service program. Learn more at www.jmgkids.us.
