2022 Adair Co. Extension Gardening Project signup

By Tony Rose, Agent for 4-H Youth Development
Adair County Extension Service

The Adair County Cooperative Extension Service is sponsoring a Family Gardening Project.

To register for this program, complete the on-line registration form. You will be contacted when to start picking up gardening supplies. The program is available to the first 40 families who register. The registration deadline is Tuesday, March 1, 2022.

To register go to this online link to sign up your family:

This is a family gardening project, therefore the whole family should be involved. You can do container gardening, a regular garden, raised bed gardens or a combination of all of them. The gardens do not have to be large. Small gardens are great, and we will give you resources to show you how to get the most from your garden.

As part of this project, participants will receive vegetable seeds, transplants, a seed starting kit, and educational information needed to grow a garden. Attendance to three meetings is required. Meetings will be held in-person at the Adair County Extension Office on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, March 29, 2022, at 6pmCT: Planning Your Garden- Nick Roy, ANR Extension Agent
  • Thursday, May 5, 2022, at 6pmCT: Plants/Seed & Youth Exhibits- Tony Rose, 4-H Youth Development Extension Agent
  • Friday, July 8, 2022, at 2pmCT: The Road to Food Dehydration- Dylan Gentry, FCS Extension Agent
As part of the project, all participants are asked to share pictures and stories about your gardening project. We want this to be a family experience, not just for the youth. You will also be getting healthy recipes to try with the plants you have in your garden. We would also like to see the youth enter some of their produce or plants in the Adair County 4-H Project Exhibits later in the summer.
