Master Gardeners assist the city of Newport News put seedlings into childrens hands for them to plant at home.

Join us at the annual Newport News Park Children's Festival.  When you and your children come and visit us at our tent, you will have the pleasure of planting your very own flower to take home and replant!  After you choose your flower, Master Gardeners will help you to get it potted and teach you how to transplant in your yard.  It is a fun way to get little ones started with gardening!  Come find us there in the month of May.
