KTB supports the Junior Master Gardener program in Central Texas. JMG began as a dream of a few avid Master Gardeners, teachers, children and Extension faculty. These few planted the initial seed that has now germinated into a premier children’s gardening program.
More than 600 children and adults contributed to the development, writing, layout, art and piloting of this curriculum, and have shaped and molded this program into a handbook and teacher/leader guide that will be fun, educational and exciting for everyone. The goal of the Junior Master Gardener program is to use horticulture as a tool for cultivating children and communities.
The Junior Master Gardener program introduces young gardeners to the art and science of gardening and helps them develop leadership and life skills to become good citizens within their communities, schools and families.
