Connecting kids to nature

Blithewold and the Bristol Garden Club are joining forces to offer a Junior Master Gardener program beginning in November at Blithewold. The program is new and modeled after the URI Master Gardener Program for adults. The program exposes young gardeners to the magic and wonders of nature and introduces young gardeners to the art and science of growing things through fun and creative activities.
The program is geared toward Bristol and Warren students in grades 3 to 5. They will meet once a week for six weeks starting in November. The Bristol Garden Club donated funds from its annual scholarship fund for students from Bristol and Warren. Please spread the word.
For more information call Julie Murphy at 253 2707 ext. 16 or email her at: jmurphyedu@blithewold.org
