4-H Tip of the Week


Winter weather is here and now is a good time to plan your 4-H projects for the fair season. With a little down time you could think and prepare your 4-H General Show project! Wouldn't it be nice to have them done and ready to go? Start thinking now!

Still want to join 4-H? We can fix you up. Call the Edwards County Extension office at 618.445.2934 for more details.
