JMG Mantis Mascot

There will be a new Junior Master Gardener (JMG) Club meeting at Southport Elementary starting in January, on the 2nd & 4th Tuesdays each month at 3:30pm.  Contact club leader Jennifer Ray at 910-278-7856 for additional information. There is no fee to join, handbooks will be provided at no cost to the member.


If your child has a green thumb or enjoys playing in the dirt, Brunswick County’s Junior Master Gardener Program might be just what they need.  Each of the new club leaders are Brunswick County Master Gardener Volunteers and have received six hours of 4-H volunteer training in addition to their Master Gardener certification.  The Junior Master Gardener (JMG) program is an international youth gardening program of the Cooperative Extension network, modeled after the highly popular Master Gardener program. The JMG program engages children in “hands-on” group and individual learning experiences that provide a love of gardening, develop an appreciation for the environment, and cultivate the mind.


The program is available for youth currently enrolled in grades 3-5.  For information about the Junior Master Gardener Program, please visit their website at
