4-H Great Green Gardeners first meeting, March 2010

Our new 4-H gardening project club is born!

We had 11 youth and volunteers attend our very first meeting. It was decided to keep the name "Great Green Gardeners." Everyone is enthusiastic about putting our gardens together. We talked about square foot gardening and received a square foot grid to help us learn how to plan for planting.

We made our own newspaper pots and used then to plant tomato, green pepper, baby watermelon and bush bean seeds. We will document their growth in our notebooks.

Before our next meeting in April, we have plenty of tasks to complete so we are ready to finalize the plans for our square foot, raised bed and container gardens. Members will add to this blog along the way.
