Youth learn about plants and environment  Send a link to a friend

[JULY 9, 2004]  Two classes of Logan County Junior Master Gardeners graduated in June.

The first class studied ecology and environmental horticulture. They learned how, in nature, there is a balance between all living things. They did hands-on activities to learn about the weather, the importance of recycling, types of composting, organic gardening options, making paper and much more. They also completed a community service project for the nursing home.

Some of the hands-on activities were propagation, taught by one of the Logan County Master Gardeners; flower dissection; leaf rubbings; garden layouts; and much more. This group also completed a community service project for the nursing home.
