Kaufman County Master Gardeners presented two different, but related, programs for adults and children. “Gardening with Kids” is fun…if you know how to make it fun. Those who were at the Riter C. Hulsey Public Library in Terrell on February 9 got information how to do that from Kaufman County Master Gardener and teacher Amy Barber. Barber is also the author of two online classes–Gardening with Kids and Ready, Set, Go Garden–found on the KC Master Gardener website, kcmga.org.

While the adults attended Barber’s program, Master Gardener Karel Holloway held a program for children. “What’s in Dirt?” answered that question by letting the children handle soil samples while Holloway explained about the composition of soil, all the things living in it, and its importance for plant growth. The kids also got to plant an onion slip to take home.
