Gardening with Kids

The Garden Club Federation of Maine provides many educational opportunities for the youth at the pre-school, elementary, middle and high school level. The purpose of the Youth Gardening Programs is to introduce gardening, conservation, protection of wildlife, recognition of plants, trees and shrubs, basic flower arrangements, and the love and appreciation of nature. The goal is that they will be future citizens who will be responsible and capable with greater self-expression, dignity, integrity and knowledge of their environment.

Opportunities for children and teens are available through

  • School gardening
  • Girl and Boy Scout badges
  • Ideas for Home Schooled students

Contests available
