While you're stocking up on your favorite local goods at the Freight Shed this Saturday, stroll down to the Community Room on the south end. Our community guests this week are the 4-H Club from Morris Farm and Kim Andersson, the Morris Farm Administrator. They 4-Hers will be sharing with us information and news of their latest projects.
The Morris Farm Trust promotes the values of sustainable agriculture and stewardship of the earth through education, demonstration and community involvement.
Clover Bud is a term used to identify 4-H members who are 5 through 8 years old. Any Maine youth between the 4-H ages of 5 and 8 years old may join the 4-H program.
Participation, safety, personal development, learning, and fun in a cooperative, non-competitive setting are the priorities of the Clover Bud program.
Clover Buds experience programs that are developmentally appropriate, activity-oriented, involve cooperative learning, and are focused on learning activity skills and life skills through a wide variety of topic areas.
4-H offers many hands-on learning opportunities that can produce a positive impact in your community. 4-Hers may participate in projects ranging from photography to robotics to animal science.
Youth and adults work together to create a safe educational environment that promotes learning life skills. 4-H activities are available at the club, county, state, and national level.
