Jr. Master Gardener Program

Jr. Master Gardener's mission is to grow good kids by igniting a passion for learning, success and service through a unique gardening education program. Children can explore their world through meaningful activities to encourage leadership development, personal pride and community involvement. Critical thinking skills, identifying community concerns and learning to take action skills are developed through individual and group projects.
Camp T.U.R.F.
"Thanks for a good 10-year run of Camp T.U.R.F." Camp T.U.R.F. was a two-week, residential academy at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater. Students would interact with professors and explore a variety of careers in horticulture and landscaping with hands-on activities at botanical gardens, field research stations, a turfgrass research center, greenhouses, research laboratories and design workshops, as well as special OSU facilities such as the Insect Adventure and The Botanic Garden. Helpful sessions about college admission, financial aid, and skills for success were included in the academy as well as evening and recreational activities.
The camp is currently not being offered, but for curriculum or information contact Shelley Mitchell
