The Gardens of the Fox Cities in Appleton is offering Jr. Landscape and Seed to Market youth gardening programs this summer.

The Jr. Landscape program is for ages 11-15 and gives young people the chance to gain landscaping skills in innovative ways. Guest speakers with expertise in landscaping and the education staff created hands-on lessons that use a variety of tools and equipment to give participants the background they need to work safely and confidently in the lawn and garden. Weekly topics include soil and organic gardening, tree planting and pruning and lawn mowers.

The group meets 1:30-3 p.m. June 3, 10, 17 and 24. The cost is $47 or $37 for garden members. There is a 10 percent discount for siblings participating in the program.

The Seed to Market program is for ages 15-18 and promotes healthy, organic, local food by growing it in the community. Young adults have the opportunity to start plants from seed, care for theses plants throughout the summer and sell their produce at the Appleton Farm Market.

Program participants also will share their produce and their experiences growing healthy, organic food at the Gardens to Gourmet fundraiser. Students will learn from guest speakers and the education staff about a variety of garden-related topics.

Participants meet 1:30-3 p.m. Thursdays June 6-Aug. 29. The cost is $70 or $60 for members. There is a 10 percent discount for siblings participating in the program.
