SAN ANTONIO – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will present Junior Master Gardener Camps June 23 and July 7 at BiblioTech Library sites in San Antonio.

The camps are free and designed for children 7-11 years old, said Ruby Zavala, AgriLife Extension youth gardening programs coordinator, Bexar County.

The first camp will be June 23 from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at BiblioTech South, 3505 Pleasanton Road.

The second will be July 7 from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at BiblioTech West, 2003 S. Zarzamora, Bldg. 10.

“Participants will learn about plants and gardening through fun hands-on activities and games,” Zavala said. “JMG engages children in novel, hands-on group and individual learning experiences so they can develop a love of gardening and appreciation for the environment.”

The Junior Master Gardener program is an international youth gardening program of the land-grant university system’s Extension network, she said.

For more information and to register for the camp, contact Zavala at 210-631-0400 or  Ruby.Zavala@ag.tamu.edu.
