Junior Master Gardeners

Prairie Elementary is home to the oldest Junior Master Gardeners chapter in Johnson County.  Join us monthly for meetings organized by our Johnson County Extension Master Gardener volunteers.  This year's activities will be focused on growing health plants and healthy habits.  We will be learning about plants and animals and engaging in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities. 

JMG is open to 3rd-6th grade students and meets monthly on Thursdays after school in the Art room. 

Meeting Dates: 9/14, 10/26, 11/9, 12/14, 1/18, 2/15, 3/21, 4/11, 5/8.
