Huron County 4-H is an organization of leaders building leaders. With projects encompassing; agriculture, food, health, and the environment, 4-H Ontario’s “Learn To Do By Doing” clubs have had many successful years of history in our association. Founded in 1952, we deliver quality life skills programs with a focus on; innovation, sustainability, and leadership, for youth and volunteers; benefitting the citizens and communities in which they live.
So what is 4-H?
4-H is an agriculturally based organization for youth 9-21, with the Clover Buds program geared to youth 6-8 years old. 4-H is divided into 2 sections, livestock and life skills. Livestock clubs in our region traditionally run from April to September, in which members raise an animal (dairy, beef, lamb, swine, chicken, etc.) and show them at fall fairs. Life skills clubs are based on everything and anything else, including baking, camping, snowmobiles, archery, gardening, photography, plowing, field crops, small engine repairs, etc. Our life skills clubs tend to run a club over a 6-12 weeks, and will run multiple clubs throughout the year. All clubs consist of six meetings, an achievement program, and a project. For more information about 4-H program.
Clover Buds runs a little differently than the 4-H program, with 3 years of ‘units’ (or topics). Each year consists of 24 units and each meeting is therefore a different topic! The Clover Bud program was introduced to Huron County 4-H in 2015. For more information about Clover Buds program.
