The Leelanau Enterprise reports that MSU Extension and 4-H will host a children’s summer gardening program for students in grades 3-6 in July and August at the Old Art Building in Leland. Participants in the Junior Master Gardener program will learn about soil and plant science, compost and ecology, wildlife and insects, vegetables and herbs, trees and shrubs, flowers and houseplants, and design and color. Students will also help with garden projects at the Old Art Building.
The cost per child is just $25 for current Michigan 4-H members or $35 for non-members – a bargain indeed (especially if you can get your kids to apply their knowledge in your garden!).
