Freshly harvested vegetables fill a basket.

A day-long gardening camp for kids is set for Tuesday, June 28, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s for youngsters 8-12 years of age and will be held at the Jackson County Agriculture Complex, in the auditorium of the venue at 2741 Penn Avenue in Marianna.

The cost is $20, and will cover the cost of materials for indoor and outdoor activities centered on growing plants, cooking, and arts and crafts.

More information and a registration opportunity can be found on Eventbrite: JacksonCountyFCS.eventbrite.com.

“This camp will cover growing and caring for plants and encourage kids to cook and eat the vegetables they grow,” University of Florida/IFAS representatives said in a press release. “The camp will include fun and creative indoor and outdoor activities including arts and crafts, cooking practice and completing a gardening project,” the release continued. “Participants will make their own lunch and will take home a variety of project items.”

The class will require a minimum of six participants or it will be cancelled. Due to class size limitations, pre-registration is required. Refunds will only be issued if requests are made before June 21.
