The Adams County Extension Service applied for the North Dakota Junior Master Gardener grant program with the NDSU Extension Service. They were awarded grant money for the Unique Container Gardening for Vegetables and Flowers project.

The North Dakota Junior Master Gardener Program provides funds and educational materials for gardening projects across the state. This program supports the education of thousands of children in 30 or more counties every year.

The Adams County Extension Service went to daycares in the Hettinger for do the project with them. The youth made flower pots from gallon tin cans. Holes were drilled in the bottom of the can for drainage and they decorated the tin can with colorful duct tape. Then they filled the can with potting soil and planted flowers in their tin.

There was 48 youth that made a flower pot. Thanks to the Children’s Way Child Care, Lil Hawks and Tater Tot Daycares for letting us coming to their daycare to do the fun project.
