National 4-H Week October 2nd – 7th

4-H has generally been thought of as a club for the farm kids.  The members prepare all year to show off their projects at the county fair. 4-H members prepare their livestock for the show ring, their fruits and vegetables for grocery store style display, and illustrate that the best grain crops are grown right in their county. However, it is much more than just an organization for the farm kids.

This organization helps communities unify and individuals grow. The official 4-H emblem is a green four-leaf clover with a white H on each leaf standing for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. White and green are the organization’s official colors. White symbolizes purity and green represents growth.

This is not a club that only farm kids can join nor does it just involve only farm type projects; anyone can join and just about any project can be done!  Projects can vary from fashion to baking to home improvement to wildlife to horticulture to performing arts to aerospace; the list is endless.  4-H helps communities unify by bringing teenagers and children together that have many different interests.  4-H can help their members grow by feeding off of other members’ ideas, sparking new interests in each other and finding each individual’s talent.

Both AgQuest and 4-H provide tools to help individuals and communities grow and prosper. Check out the 4-H website, or their Facebook page,  “Together We Find The Way!”
