The People/Plant Connection is proud to announce the formation of two new Junior Master Gardener Clubs in San Angelo.
They will be at two locations, the Carl Ray Johnson Rec Center, 1103 N. Farr Street and at the Southside Rec Center, 2750 Ben Ficklin Rd. The clubs will meet on Mondays, 4-5:30 p.m. at the CRJ Rec Center and on Tuesdays, 4-5:30 p.m. at the Southside Rec Center. The program goes from September 2013 through May 2014. They will meet twice monthly on the 1st and 3rd weeks. The cost is $25 per member for the 8 month program. This covers a student handbook and supplies. Young gardeners will learn leadership skills, horticulture, community service and get hands-on gardening experience at both centers. The curriculum is through the Texas A&M AgriLive Extension Service and members earn awards and certificates as they progress through the program.

Registration and orientation will be Monday, September 9, 4-5:30 p.m. at the CRJ Rec Center. It will be held on Tuesday, September 10, 4-5:30 p.m. at the Southside Rec Center. To preregister and assure a handbook on the first day, call 325-656-3104 to reserve a space for your child. Space is limited so call today.

For questions and to register call Susan Stanfield, 325-656-3104.
