Gardening with Youth

Gardening with Youth

MGEVs involved in projects targeted towards youth are working to increase young people’s awareness and understanding of the value of horticulture and landscaping, using horticulture as a tool to increase responsibility and leadership for youth, and teaching individuals and professionals, such as teachers and therapists, how to use horticulture to reach young people.

To reach the youth audience, GA MGEVs engage in projects like school gardens and orchards, community gardens with garden beds and activity programs geared to children, or carrying out sessions of the international Junior Master Gardener program or the state MG SPROUTS program.
