Connecting youth with engaging and meaningful gardening projects and connecting MGVs with quality resources to work with them. Education includes: ongoing displays and activities at farmers markets - drop-in activities and take away educational pieces; elementary school high interest days; Earth Day celebrations; 4H events; State Fair scavenger hunt; Retzer Apple Fest, and Wehr Nature Center Bug Day.
Share your garden knowledge and the resources of the UW-Madison Extension; advise and teach volunteers, staff, and participants to help them plan, install, plant, care for, and harvest their community garden as needed. MGVs do not care for the garden but advise community members about how to care for their own garden. Generally a short-term project.
Volunteer by giving gardening presentations to the public. Training is provided to all who are interested in giving presentations. Speaker notes are provided as well.
