This exciting project began in 2018. It allows master gardener volunteers to work directly with youngsters who are registered members of Ozaukee County 4-H. The collaboration between 4-H and OMG allows us to help children to develop life skills through horticulture education.
In addition to monthly project meetings and workshops held in the 4-H Pavilion at the Ozaukee County Fairgrounds, there is hands-on instruction in the nearby 26' by 19' Teaching Garden. The garden is surrounded by a white picket fence that our volunteers installed. It features raised beds, a compost bin and a rain barrel system. There is an elevated garden bed suitable for wheelchair
accessibility. Look for the garden on the east side of the Fairgrounds' Gazebo building. It's a great place to see small space gardening techniques. Our young participants are so proud of it!
