The North Dakota Junior Master Gardener Program is offering grants of up to $600 for youth gardening projects!
This is a great opportunity for 4-H clubs, schools, preschools, church groups and other youth organizations.
Funds may be used to purchase gardening supplies (tools, soil, seeds, plants or containers) and educational supplies. Approximately 50 projects are supported across our state each year.
More than 3,200 youth participated in Junior Master Gardener projects in 2022. These projects included starting school gardens, beautifying schools and parks, constructing raised beds for the elderly, and growing vegetables for local food pantries.
