Junior Gardeners

On January 17th , the garden club members met with the Junior Gardeners at the Lake Placid Memorial Library in Lake Placid.

Several junior gardeners attended to learn about growing vegetables from seeds. Carol discussed how to grow vegetables prior to starting the project. They had a large container box to prepare before planting the seeds. Potting soil, compost and leaves were added then mixed. Each junior gardener also prepared a plastic pot with soil,  selected a vegetable to plant to take home.

The Junior Gardeners will meet every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 2:15 pm at the library. Members are encouraged to come play in the dirt with the students.
