2021 Adair County Extension Gardening Project Signup

By Tony Rose, Agent for 4-H Youth Development
Adair County Cooperative Extension Service

The Adair County Cooperative Extension Service is sponsoring a Family Gardening Project. To register for this project fill out the registration form. We will contact you on when to start picking up gardening supplies. This is open to the first 40 families who register. To register go to the online link to sign up your family:

This is a family gardening project so we want the whole family to get involved. You can do container gardening, a regular garden, raised bed gardens, or a combination of all of them. The gardens do not have to be large. Small gardens are great and we will give you resources to show you how to get the most of your garden.

As part of this project, participants will receive vegetable seeds, transplants, seed starting kits, and educational information needed to grow a garden. Items will be distributed via "grab n go" kits following the schedule below:

  • February: Collect and submit soil samples for your garden spot(s).
  • March: Pick up seeds and information for the following crops: lettuce, radishes, and beets.
  • April: Pick up seed starting kit and seeds for Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Cucumber, Squash, and Zucchini.
  • May: Pick up seeds for sweet corn, green beans, okra, and tomato plants.
  • Summer: During the summer months, you will receive recipes to try with your garden project and also information on food preservation.
All participants will be required to attend a mandatory zoom session on February 9, 2021, at 6pmCT to receive additional information about the program.

As part of the project, we are asking that all participants share pictures and stories about their family garden. We want this to be a family experience not just for the youth. You will also be getting healthy recipes to try with the plants you have in your garden. We would also like to see the youth enter some of their produce or plants in the Adair County 4-H Project Exhibits later in the summer.

For more information contact the Adair County Cooperative Extension Service at 270-384-2317.

Open to the first 40 families who register. The registration deadline is Friday, February 5, 2021.
