OSU Extension, Lucas County is pleased to announce the 2022 Mini Garden Project. This long-standing partnership between locally-owned greenhouses, 4H Youth Development, and the Junior County Fair is open to any Lucas County youth, aged 8 - 18. In addition to the opportunity to show a project (a tomato plant and a marigold plant, each in its own container), participants also have the opportunity to pick up free plants donated by local greenhouses. Look for flyers out in the county - and all of the details can be found at https://lucas.osu.edu/localfoods/4-h-mini-garden-project. This site has a link for registration for coupons for free plants (deadline of May 1st), a registration form to enter the projects (for free) to the Lucas County Fair (due May 15th), and additional factsheets and resources to help with questions about gardening. Happy growing!
