Teaching youth about gardening is important.
Nashville, Ark. –
Howard County youth learned no matter whether you live in an apartment or a 100-acre
farm, you can grow your own vegetables and flowers. Last week 30 Mineral Springs 3rd graders, 18 Nashville Primary 1st graders, and 32 traditional 4-H members from across the county participated in the
March 4-H Kit, You Can Grow Them Anywhere.
The kit contained the basic materials needed to start a garden including soil, seeds,
starter trays, and grafting clips. It also had a do-it-yourself greenhouse for the
youth to experiment with. Curriculum covered germination, soil testing, aeration,
transplanting, grafting tomatoes, and the care and benefits of plants.
At Mineral Springs, the youth learned about entrepreneurship and how raising a garden
or having a farm could help them start a small business. They were excited to be able
to garden with their families and try new vegetables.
At Nashville Primary the program became an in-class project that will stay at the
school. The youth will chart from the plant date to the date the seedlings need to
be transplanted. They learned about aeration and how worms play an important part
in it. “Herman the 4-H Worm” taught the youth that his amazing tunnels underground
help increase the amount of air and water that gets into the soil.
These classes will continue to have monthly programs provided by the Extension Service
and conducted by Samantha Horn.
Traditional 4-H members had the opportunity to watch a Facebook Live video that featured
a local 4-H member covering the curriculum and demonstrating how to start the seeds
If you are interested in joining 4-H or for more information, contact Howard County Extension Office at 870-845-7517 or
