If you’re interested in starting a gardening program in your school or community, the 2015 Spring Youth Gardens Educator’s Training on Saturday, Jan. 24, is the perfect way to learn exactly how to get started. The free program, presented by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, is designed for teachers, educators and volunteers and will teach participants how to begin a youth garden, how to maintain and enhance an existing garden and how to put the garden to sleep between seasons.
Plant materials will be given to participants who complete the training; continuing education credits are available for participants. Training and lunch are provided at no cost to participants. Registration starts at 8 a.m., and training begins at 9 a.m. and continues until 3 p.m. at the Region 20 Education Service Center, 1314 Hines Ave.
