  2. Good Natured Garden Partners is coming to a Community Garden near you!

    Apr. 29, 2019

    With the GNGP program, OSU Extension aims to teach children all about gardening and how their food is produced.  Participation in the program is based off of a team structure.  A “Growing Team” may be formed by any group of children, and must be led by an adult volunteer(s).  The adult volunteer will fill out a volunteer form in order to receive free seeds and plants for their group, which will then plant a garden and compete for prizes and recognition at the end of summer.  Teams are responsible for finding their own garden plot or container garden.
