Keep children engaged with JMG program

Looking for an interactive, educational program for your child this summer? If you answered yes, then you'll want to check out UW-Extension's Junior Master Gardener (JMG) program.

JMG is a free, summer-long gardening/cooking program for youth, ages 8-12 years, that teaches them to "dig in the dirt," care for plants, cook in the kitchen, and enjoy delicious snacks. Beyond gardening and cooking, your child will take field trips in the community, learn about insects and "dirt" from the experts, play fun games, make County Fair projects, and create lifelong friends (just to name a few).

Sessions are held twice a month from 4 to 5:30 p.m. during school season (April and May); and then weekly from 10 to 11:30 a.m. during the summer season.

Youth that attend at least five consecutive sessions will receive a JMG T-shirt, water bottle, a field trip, and certificate of completion.

The JMG season begins April 15 in the "Garden of Eatin" gardens at the UW-Extension AE Building (UW-Fond du Lac, 400 University Drive). All sessions are open to parents, grandparents and younger siblings accompanied by an adult.

Registration deadline is Friday, March 28. To register, contact the UW-Extension office at (920) 929-3174.
