The Henrico Extension Office offers Junior Master Gardener classes to youth. JMG is designed to be a flexible program that can be utilized by many different groups. The Level One JMG curriculum is designed for grades 3-5. Youth can explore eight chapters of novel, “hands-on” activities. The program includes a study of life-skills and career exploration then culminates the JMG experience with service learning projects and recognizes their efforts with certification as a Junior Master Gardener. JMG Level Two (grades 6-8) focuses on Plant Growth & Development and on important Soil and Water education and conservation concepts.
