Resources for GA MGEVs

MGEVs are heroes when it comes to introducing youth to the joy and wonder of the garden! They lead youth through gardens, introducing them to all manner of natural things, like native plants, insects, blooms, seed pods, and soil. MGEVs can be found in the classroom, showing students how plants serve as amazing air conditioners and cleaners or sharing the awe of a germinating seed. Youth learn how to coax plants into bloom or how to create a craft from a plant to share with a loved one. MGEVs share a love of growing things with young people, and they plant the seeds that may inspire a young person to continue gardening all their life or maybe even pursue a career in horticulture.
