The Youth Activity Committee (YAC) is a team of certified Master Gardeners dedicated to providing educational programs to the community. It provides events and hands-on activities combined with horticulture information, the Junior Master Gardener (JMG) program (a 4-H youth development program) and its related curriculum. We seek to “promote a love of gardening, develop an appreciation for the environment, and cultivate the mind” using both individual and group activities.
These activities are creative, well-researched, horticulturally beneficial, and readily available to the Fort Bend County community. They have been used by a wide range of people and organizations. JMG is a treasure trove of practical gardening activities, its applications seem limitless.
JMG provides many ideas for almost any group wanting a hands-on nature-based fun and educational program, including: schools (public, private or home-based), church groups, 4-H clubs, Scout troops, and community-based events. These programs include gardening projects, community events, classroom or group presentations, summer camp activities and many other categories beneficial to area youth and their families.
