Junior Master Gardeners- Kennard Elementary Centreville

Tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, radishes…. All the components needed for a delicious salad.  But many of us that have gotten our hands dirty in a garden realize that these vegetables do not magically appear.  They take time, care, and effort to grow.  And the work isn’t through until the vegetables are harvested.  The Junior Master Gardeners at Kennard Elementary in Centreville planted their two salad tables and two earth boxes on Wednesday, April 14 with the help of University of Maryland Extension and the Queen Anne’s County Master Gardeners.

This program’s focus is on children learning through inspiring garden and ecologically based outdoor activities, creative expression, and an open exploration of nature and plants.  This jam-packed 6 week course offers fun, interactive and creative hands on activities, where students get their hands dirty!!!!

All classes will be led by Extension Educator, Rachel Melvin and the Queen Anne’s Master Gardener Volunteers.  For more information on contact Rachel Melvin, Master Gardener Coordinator at 410-758-0166 or rmelvin1@umd.edu
