“These grants provide opportunities for kids to learn about gardening and our environment,” says NDSU Extension horticulturist Tom Kalb.
Approximately 50 projects are supported across the state each year.
More than 4,000 youth participated in Junior Master Gardener projects in 2021. These projects included starting school gardens, beautifying schools and parks, constructing raised beds for the elderly and growing vegetables for local food pantries.
