Junior Master Gardener Program Expands to Southern Chester County

Free info session scheduled on March 19 at the Oxford Public Library. Classes begin March 28.

Junior Master Gardeners Class of 2012


Chester County 4-H and Master Gardeners announce the expansion of the Junior Master Gardener Program to Oxford, PA.  This exciting new youth program for 4th and 5th (and possibly 3rd) graders seeks to ignite a passion for learning, success, ecology, the environment and service through a unique gardening education. 

The hands-on program will engage kids from the start with fun classes such as “Mud Pies,” “Out of the Sprout,” and “Exploding Cactus.” 

Students are given the opportunity to start plants from seeds, learn about composting with a worm farm and see a butterfly grow from start to finish.   Over time, the children will improve their gardening skills, participate in service projects, and earn Junior Master Gardener certificates.  During the program, students will also help create and maintain a vegetable garden.  A portion of the food grown in the vegetable garden will be donated to the Chester County Food Bank. 

A no-obligation information session will be held at the Oxford Public Library, 42 South Second Street, Oxford, PA on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm in the Children’s Library. 
At this session, parents will be able to see where classes will be held, view program materials, meet some of the instructors, and register children for the program.

Program space is limited; those attending this information session will be given priority.

Locally 4-H is coordinated by Penn State Extension in Chester County. 

To find out more information about this program or other 4-H programs contact Toni Stuetz, Extension 4-H Coordinator at tstuetz@psu.edu or 610-696-3500.
