New WSU Extension Program

Launches in Island County


The Junior Master Gardener program (JMG) engages children in novel, “hands-on” learning experiences that provide a love of gardening, develop an appreciation for the environment, and cultivate the mind.

JMG also inspires youths to be of service to others through service learning and leadership development projects, and rewards them with certification and recognition.

Youth may enroll in JMG either individually or join the 4-H Youth Development Club being formed in Island County  in support of the program.
