Hey kids! If you are aged 5, 16 or anywhere inbetween and are interested in growing things, the Junior Gardeners could be just what you're looking for.
Registration is in March each year and then at the end of May you can pick up your free plants - 2 varieties of vegetables and 2 flowering plants. You'll learn how to take care of them and watch them grow over the summer. In the fall, at the Russell Fair, you'll be able to show what you've grown. Along with your flowers and vegetables, there will be categories for crafts or flower arrangements for you to enter as well. There are also awards given out at the end of the year for categories such as "Most Enthusiastic" and "Most Imaginative Garden".
It's a great way to meet new friends, learn about gardening and have lots of fun!
Registration is $7 per person ($15 maximum per family).
For more information, you can contact Mary-Lynn Lackie at 613-445-1386, or email email@example.com.
