Children's Garden Club News!
Congratulations to the eight boys and girls (ages 5 - 12) in the Children’s Garden Club who completed the requirements for their Golden Ray Series Certification in Vegetables and Herbs. Over the past few months (beginning in the Fall of 2012) each child worked hard [both] at home and the Library completing the required activities. These included: planning a garden, growing and harvesting techniques, nutrition in the garden and how to use vegetable and herbal products. Each child has already received or will be receiving a Golden Ray Series Certificate and a Junior Master Gardener Vegetable Pin. This certification is a portion towards their ultimate goal of certification as a Junior Master Gardener! Throughout the winter season, the children grew, nurtured and harvested English peas, carrots, radishes, herbs, kale, cabbage and other fabulous winter plants. Without a doubt, these children have proven that you can have a “green thumb" at any age!
