Junior Master Gardener Program

Mission

The Junior Master Gardener Program was created in Duval County in 2002. Our mission is to enhance education experiences through hands on learning activities and provide curricular materials that enable us to help youth learn and retain science with concrete experience.

Youth perform community service activities and gain skills in problem solving, communication and goal setting.  The work is coupled with vegetable and butterfly gardens.

How does it work?

Most of the programs are in Duval County Public Schools. Florida Master Gardener volunteers go into classrooms to teach the materials. The students and teachers take leadership roles in garden care.
