This program began on April 8th, 2017, when
several Master Gardeners’ helped our junior gardeners
(ages 1 to 14) plant perennials at the Library. This

saw this dream become real, because there was a need to
beautify the Library property while teaching young
children the joy of gardening. The local Master
Gardeners awarded our gardeners with $1,400 to purchase
