Cloverbuds is a yearlong program for youth ages 6-8 to introduce them to all of the fun that 4-H Ontario has to offer. It uses the same hands-on learning style of traditional 4-H but adapts it in a way that is fun and engaging for younger kids.

The best part of Cloverbuds is making friends and learning new skills together. Cloverbuds usually meet once or twice a month and participate in a wide range of activities to build confidence, skills and knowledge.

In Cloverbuds you will:

  • Experience fun, hands on learning that is age appropriate and geared towards young minds
  • Learn about a variety of topics including agriculture, science & technology, crafting, agriculture, foods and more!
  • Be introduced to the structure and style of the 4-H program in Ontario
