Welcome to 4-H in Halton County!
4-H is an organization of leaders building leaders in every county of Ontario through a wide variety of projects (clubs) that teach about life skills, home skills and agriculture.
4-H Ontario’s “Learn To Do By Doing” approach has provided 4-H youth with a place where they can be involved, accepted, valued and heard while developing valuable leadership and life skills.
The 4-H movement has its roots in rural communities but is certainly not exclusive to “farm kids”! Here in Halton, we offer many clubs that are centered around developing new hobbies and skills that are applicable to anyone.
We welcome youth from 9-21 to join our clubs. Most events are based around the Milton, Acton and Georgetown areas.

Clubs to choose from this year:
Scents for the Soul
This club will explore scents and tastes that make us happy, relaxed and soothing to the soul. Members will learn how to make chocolate, bath bombs, and candles, along with cards and gift boxes. These handmade items make for great gifts for friends and families, or treat yourself!
Let’s Get Growing Flowers
Join us to learn how to grow your very own cut flower garden. Unearth gardening flowers on any scale in the Let’s Get Growing – Flowers Project. From a large flower garden or field in the country, to a garden in your backyard, to a planter box on a balcony – we’ll show you how to make the most of your space any time of year and grow beautiful blooms to share with the bees, friends and family!
Digital cameras are impressive pieces of equipment. The Digital Photography Project will teach you how your camera works, how to use its many functions and – most importantly – how to take high quality, beautiful photos you’ll want to show off. In this project you’ll learn how to take different types of pictures, how to store digital images, and how to share and show off your photography skills through prints and displays!
The Halton 4-H Rabbit Hopping project teaches you how to care and have fun with your rabbit! In this sport, you’ll learn and practice rabbit agility with an obstacle course against time, and follow cues of the rabbit through the course. Members will lead rabbits through jumps, tunnels, bridges, teeter totters, weaving poles! (rabbit required)
Explore 4-H – Livestock
If you’re having trouble deciding what projects to take on, the Explore 4-H Project is a great place to start. We’ll cover various 4-H livestock subjects and agricultural topics over meetings so you can decide which ones to pursue further. This is a great way for young or new members to see what 4-H has to offer through fun, interactive activities. (no livestock required)
