GARDEN PARTNERS: The Good Natured Garden Partners program will kick off summer programs in Mahoning County. The Ohio State University Extension aims to teach children about gardening and how food is produced. Participation in the program is based off a team structure. A “Growing Team” may be formed by any group of children, and must be led by an adult volunteer. The adult volunteer will fill out a volunteer form to receive free seeds and plants for their group, which will then plant a garden and compete for prizes and recognition at the end of summer. Teams are responsible for finding their own garden plot or container garden.
Throughout the summer, teams will attend the gardening kick-off event May 27 and are required to attend at least two other gardening events. A garden party Aug. 12 will wrap up the summer with fellowship, fun and a chance to win prizes for best garden displays, garden harvest and more.
The registration deadline is Friday. To learn more or to register, call the Mahoning County Extension office at 330-533-5538 or visit www.go.osu.edu/GNGP2019.
