An urban gardening and 4-H youth enrichment workshop is set for Friday, March 6, at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff’s North Little Rock Center, 1333 Main St. at North Little Rock.


Educational workshops will be held from 9:30 a.m. to noon. The event is free and registration is on-site, according to a news release.


Sponsored by the UAPB School of Agriculture, Fisheries and Human Sciences, the workshop is a way to get youth interested in gardening, farming and community engagement.
