How to Begin

The Garden 'n Grow program is sponsored and administered by University Extension. The Garden 'n Grow program is available to any Missouri community that has two caring adults who are willing to teach interested children, ages 9 to 13 years old and will follow the guidelines established by University Extension. The three basic components of the Garden 'n Grow program are two adult volunteers, twenty children, and a plot of land suitable for gardening.

Choosing Flowers

Each gardener is teamed up with another to plant a theme garden. Some of these include:

  • Salsa Garden
  • Rad Garden
  • Rainbow Garden
  • Spicy Garden
  • Holiday Garden
  • Relish Tray Garden
