SAN ANTONIO -- The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is taking applications for participants in its Children’s Vegetable Garden program, said David Rodriguez, AgriLife Extension agent for horticulture, Bexar County.

“We are inviting young people ages eight to 13 to participate in our spring session of the popular Children’s Vegetable Garden program, a joint program of AgriLife Extension and the San Antonio Botanical Garden,” Rodriguez said.

He said the program is held in the Children’s Vegetable Garden area of the botanical garden, located at 555 Funston Place in San Antonio.

Participants can also earn their Junior Master Gardener

Certification.

The program will be from 9 a.m. to noon on 16 consecutive Saturdays from Feb. 16 to June 1. An application and information can be found on the website for AgriLife Extension in Bexar County at

http://bexar-tx.tamu.edu. The deadline for applying is Friday, Feb. 8.

The cost for the children’s program is $40 to cover seeds, plants, compost, and other items, as well as Junior Master Gardener materials. However, if a friend or second family member is added to a program plot, the fee will be $50.

Completed applications should be mailed or dropped off with full payment to the San Antonio Botanical Garden. Send the application and payment to Children’s Vegetable Garden Program, San Antonio Botanical Garden, 555 Funston Place, San Antonio, TX 78209.

Acceptance in the program will be based on completeness of the application and willingness to attend each Saturday morning session, although two absences are allowed. Participants accepted into the program will be notified by Monday, Feb. 11.

For more information or to ask about any special child’s requirements, contact Rodriguez at 210-467-6575 or dhrodriguez@ag.tamu.edu.
