Youth Gardening

BRENTWOOD - Youth gardens . . . it’s a dirty business and kids love it! Youth gardens connect students, teachers, administrators, parents, and volunteers in a community building experience. Learn more on Sat., March 30, about establishing a youth garden in your town.

The workshop is sponsored by UNH Cooperative Extension through a grant from the N.H. Charitable Foundation. It takes place at the Massabesic Audubon Center, 26 Audubon Way, Auburn.

The morning session, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., is $5.00 per person, and open to everyone who wants to learn more about establishing and promoting youth gardens. Topics will include: establishing a successful, sustainable youth garden at your facility or school; how to design and build a child-friendly garden; and how to use your garden as a learning center. To register, contact Ron Christie at or (603) 679-5616.

Are you interested in joining a group of youth garden coordinators who will be coached through the season, share knowledge and practice, and host a community event in your garden this fall? Apply to join the Youth Garden Community of Practice.

On March 30, the newly formed group will attend the morning session, break for a provided lunch, and continue with an afternoon session from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Members will receive season-long garden coaching from a Master Gardener volunteer and attend a follow-up session on Sat., May 18, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

To obtain an application for the afternoon session, visit, email Ron Christie at, or call (603) 679-5616.
