Garden n' Grow
Every summer University of Missouri Extension offers Garden n’ Grow, a youth gardening program for children ages 9 to 14. This is a great opportunity for local youth to grow their own vegetables and learn about horticulture. The program also encourages the discovery of science and nature through gardening. The Adair County Garden n' Grow program will start May 30 and meet every Monday and Thursday from 9:30-11:00 a.m. through August 12 at the Adair County Extension Center. Space is limited and the deadline to register is May 24. Get the registration form

It's a great time to join 4-H!
4-H is a community of young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H is young people making new friends and memories while preparing to be leaders of today and tomorrow. We are a volunteer-led organization that reaches boys and girls through small groups called clubs. 4-H members choose from over 40 projects in which to participate. Most projects use hands-on learning experiences to teach subject matter and life-skills such as cooperation, leadership and decision making — skills that can be applied over and over for a lifetime. Contact Michelle Klem, 4-H youth development specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 660-665-9866 to learn how to join 4-H.
