2020 Janet B. Carson County Scholarship Recipients

Drew County's Attracting Butterflies, Birds, and Bees in Monticello

Drew County Master Gardeners, in collaboration with four other organizations, established two sites as public demonstration projects.  The sites are used by Master Gardeners to share informatin on native plants with the general public as well as for learning opportunities for students in area schools.  Signage will include plant and insect identification and the pollinators attracted to the sites to create increased awareness of pollinators.  The project includes trees, shrubs, wildflowers, herbs, non-native nectar annuals, hardscapes, and signage.  

Greene County's Teaching Garden

Greene County Master Gardeners, in collaboration with two other organizations, are teaching local youth basic gardening principles about natural resources, plants, insects, pests, and composting with hands-on learning opportunities.    4-H students (ages 5-12) learn by participating in hands-on garden activities.  Students will develop a better understanding of natural resources and plants and animals and how they interact in the garden.  They will also develop a good understanding of the growth stages of plants and animals and learn about plant pollination.  The project includes a compost area, raised garden beds, grow light, garden supplies and materials.
