Junior Gardeners monthly meetings and flower shows

East Gwillimbury Junior Gardeners meet several times per year to learn about gardening  and nature through a number of projects and by caring for a raised bed at the Millennium Garden in Mount Albert. They also have their own section in the EG Gardeners' flower shows and photography competition. Unfortunately our Junior Gardeners program has been mostly suspended during the Covid 19 pandemic.

We plan to restart the program in 2022 all being well.  If you are between the ages of 6 and 16 and have an interest in gardening and nature let us know here or at eggardeners@gmail.com for more information on how to join in the new year.
