FREE TUITION to Thanksgiving Point
"Junior Master Gardener Program"

I wish my little girls were old enough to be able to attend this wonderful program...I guess for now we'll stick with Papa's garden. The girls get lost in his towering tomato plants. They love to go into the garden with their little buckets and return with their half-eaten treasures.

."Thanksgiving Point, Utah’s cultural gathering place, is enrolling children ages 8 to 12 to participate in the Junior Master Gardener Club, a hands-on gardening program at Farm Country. Offered from 9 a.m. to noon every Wednesday throughout the summer.

Club members plant and maintain gardens, harvest and prepare food, work cooperatively in groups and learn about science and nutrition."

Thanksgiving Point's Junior Master Gardener Club works with the USU extension 4H program where participants will learn skills from canning the garden harvest to learning how water travels through plants to deliver nutrients. The young gardeners are involved in choosing what to plant and cultivating their gardens. A favorite is the pizza garden, rich with tomatoes, basil, onions, garlic and peppers.

"In late August, Junior Master Gardener participants sell their crops at the Thanksgiving Point Farmers Market. Kids experience the entire growing process – from seed to sale."

Enter to win FREE TUITION for your little gardener! This program hosts ages 8-12 and costs $99 for the entire summer. (TPoint is also offering a Saturday program for scouts ages 12-17 to help them earn merit badges. Call them for more info.)

Hey Lisa,
I enjoy your blog. It's given me the umph I needed to get my summer planned with fun activities. I wondered if you could tell me the company you worked with that did stuff like customize a chocolate bar. What was the name of that company? I am meeting with a sales girl at ABC 4 this Thursday and am hoping to do some giveaways with GTU. Do you mind me asking who your contact is there? Thanks a lot. Kendalyn
