Master Gardener Junior Gardener Program

The purpose of the Junior Gardener program is to engage young learners in grades K-4 with environmental science and horticultural programs designed to complement Delaware State Science Education standards. This in-the-schools program reaches about 3,000 students each year through the efforts of the Master Gardeners, a group of experienced gardeners with additional training in home horticulture with an environmental sensitivity, as well as training in developing and using teaching materials and techniques specifically targeted toward young learners.
