Annual Report 2015

North Dakota Junior Master Gardener Program Summary 2015The North Dakota Junior Master Gardener Program provides hands-on activities that lead to healthy kids and strong communities.

The NDSU Extension Service awarded $30,000 to 65 youth gardening projects in 2015. Approximately 5,200 youth participated in projects.

Project leaders reported their youth developed skills in gardening and science. Children learned how to eat a healthy diet and enjoyed being active in the garden. The youth gained experiences in helping their community through public service.

Projects beautified schools, parks, museums, courthouses, churches, fairgrounds and city streets. The children enhanced the landscapes of a library, zoo, cemetery, swimming pool, archery range and military base. Projects assisted in the production of 30,000 pounds of fresh vegetables.

Our illustrated Annual Report (93 pages, 6 MB) presents an introduction to the program; summary of activities; project reports; and feedback from project leaders.
