Fort Bend County Master Gardeners announce their Junior Master Gardener Earth-Kind® Kids’ Kamp (“EK3”) to be held July 22-26, 2019, from 9 am to 3 pm at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds, Bldg D in Rosenberg, Texas. The Kamp is open to children ages 8-12 and entering grades 3 through 6 for the 2019-2020 school year. Master Gardener volunteers will mentor each group and lead daily activities, and we have several guest speakers during the week. Space is limited so remember to register early.
The fee for Kamp is $75, includes activities, a T-shirt, snacks, and drinks. Kampers should dress for gardening and outside activities, including closed-toed shoes, and bring a sack lunch each day (no microwavable food).
Junior Master Gardeners (JMG) is a national program implemented by 28 universities. Texas A&M University provides the National Master Gardener Program Office and is the headquarters for JMG.
The international youth gardening program mission is, “To grow good kids by igniting a passion for learning, success and service through a unique gardening education.” Visit www.jmgkids.us for more details.
