2017 4-H Mini Garden Project


We are excited to be partnering with the Buncombe County Extension Master Gardeners again this year for the 4-H Mini Gardening Project. This is an opportunity to “dig in” and have fun with your own vegetable garden while learning through input provided by Extension Master Gardeners.  The Master Gardeners will visit your garden during the summer and provide you with information and suggestions for helping you grow a successful home vegetable garden.  This opportunity is open to ANY of our 4-H families.  We welcome all kinds of gardens: ground gardens, raised gardens, container gardens, and more.

If your family plans to participate and wants plants and seeds that the Master Gardeners provide, you must sign up by contacting Holly Jordan at holly_jordan@ncsu.edu or (828) 255-5522 by Tuesday, May 30th.  Otherwise, you can participate in the project, but you will need to provide your own plants.  Whether you provide your own plants or the Master Gardeners provide them for you, please sign up so that we can ensure that we visit your garden and include you in on any information later on.

We will have a project orientation and pick up of plants and seeds at the Buncombe County Extension Office on Thursday, June 1st from 4:00- 6:00 p.m.  This is a drop in event but you will want to arrive early to get the best pick of the plants.  If you have any questions, please contact Holly.
