The Homeschool Gardening Program (HGP) will bring garden skills and research-based information to the 4,000 homeschool families in Wake county.
We plan to explore gardens, have hands on workshops, do field trips and all kinds of learning around the world of gardening.
We'll use this meetup group to build a community of homeschool families and EMGVs (Wake County Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Volunteers) to share information and coordinate events.
