-A A +A

 Five Brunswick County 4-H members completed the Golden Ray Series of the Junior Master Gardener Program during 4-H Summer Fun.

Participants Eliza Douglass, Jessica Hockett, Jacob Cheers, London Robinson and Nickolas Dinnall received certificates for completion of the program. Master Gardener 4-H volunteers Grace Wrigley, Sharon Benson and Mercy McCurdy led the special interest group.

The Golden Ray Series focused on landscape horticulture and consists of one chapter of the Junior Master Gardener curriculum. The 4-H’ers finished 12 landscape design activities, one career exploration activity and one community service project. 

A local landscape architect spoke to the youth about careers in landscape design. As a community service project, wind chimes were decorated and placed around the Cooperative Extension Office at the Government Complex in Bolivia.

The Junior Master Gardener (JMG) program is designed for youth entering third through fifth grade.
