4-H Horticulture

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!

Our students learned a lot about garden pests and how to manage them.

4-H students created their own holiday luminaries with the help of our Master Gardeners during one of their monthly meetings in 2018.
