The Gardening with Young People program is designed to meet with different groups of young people from the Acton-Boxborough community who are invited to participate in a hands-on education project involving one of the following concentrations: horticulture, floral design, conservation, civic beautification and garden therapy.
The Gardening with Young People program provides assistance and funding, if necessary.
In the past, the committee has worked with Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Brownies, schools (including Best Buddies Program) and the Acton Memorial Library children’s department.
The Junior Gardeners’ program is open to the children and grandchildren
of Acton Garden Club members. This group has been dedicated to promoting educational projects that strive to teach children a love of gardening, an appreciation of nature’s beauty, and the value and protection of our natural resources. The group environment provides a forum in which to teach children responsibility
toward civic beautification and methods of cultivation and utilization of plants to enhance our quality of life.
Due to diminishing enrollments as children outgrow the program, the Junior Gardeners program is currently inactive, but we hope to renew this program in the near future.
