Interested in joining 4-H?

Of course your are!

"But...there is soccer, football, dance, church, homework.....AND we don't have a yard for a cow or pig."

Haven't you heard?! 4-H isn't just about cows, plows, and sows. Some of the most popular projects in 4-H don't require a yard at all. They include robotics, music, arts and crafts, and sewing. Plus there is a "self determined" project which means your child can pretty much do anything in 4-H that they are passionate about. And most projects and clubs only meet once a month (so you still have time for all your other stuff)!
