Thanks to a partnership with Partners for a Hunger Free York County, we will be offering a comprehensive gardening program starting Monday May 21, 2012 and running through the summer. The gardening program will be overseen by The University of Maine’s Cooperative Extension Master Gardener’s Volunteer Program. The site that we will be using is off-site but in walking distance of Joyful Harvest, gardening days are Monday & Wednesday 3:30-4:45pm for the remainder of the school year and Monday & Wednesdays 10:00am-12:00pm during the summer program. On garden days that is the only programming that we are offering and if kids wish to participate they must be at the center no later than 3:30pm as we must walk over to the garden site. Kids will be supervised by Joyful Harvest staff & volunteers but gardening education is being conducted by the Master Gardeners. This is a great program and a great way for any child to learn all about gardening. There is no special registration needed for this program, any child currently enrolled in the after school program is welcome to attend. If a child is not enrolled stop in any day Mon-Thur 2:00pm to 5:00pm to pick up a registration form.
