A message about 4-H in a time of social distancing

Justifiably everyone has many questions regarding 4-H this year, and we will do our best to answer your questions.  Until the provincial guidelines for social distancing are lifted, no one will be able to have in person meetings.  We would encourage leaders to look at new options such as virtual meetings or videos.  This will be challenging but we will do our best to provide you with the resources, knowledge and assistance you may require.  The Huron Leaders’ Association has purchased a Zoom account for leaders and clubs to use.

Check out 4-H Ontario Explore 4-H Project and Cloverbud at Home Experience for two new project's focused on completing on your own at home.

So what is 4-H?

4-H is an agricultural based organization for youth 9-21, with the new Clover Buds program geared to youth 6-8. 4-H is divided into 2 sections, Livestock and Lifeskill. Livestock clubs tend to run from April to September in our county, where members raise an animal (dairy, beef, lamb, swine, chicken, etc.) and show them at Fall Fairs. Lifeskills are based on everything else, including baking, camping, snowmobiles, archery, gardening, etc. Liveskills typically run through out the year. A club consists of six meetings and an acheivement program.

Clover Buds runs a little differently with 3 years of 'units' (or topics). Each year consisting of 24 units. Each meeting is therefore on a different topic! The Clover Bud program was introduced to Huron County 4-H in 2015!
