Spring is coming and it’s a good time to get kids excited about gardening.
Master gardeners will be offering a six-week youth gardening program online, starting March 25. Children in grades second through fifth grade must be registered by March 12. Spring starts March 20.
Master gardeners and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension agents will be giving gardening and nutrition lessons via Zoom at 5:15 p.m. Thursdays. The children also will get a tomato plant to care for.
“The kids will get all materials to grow their plant this season with weekly follow-ups and lessons on gardening and nutrition,” said Denise S. Rodriguez, county extension director in El Paso.
The cost is $15 which includes the supplies and plant.
