Do your kids have green thumbs? Even if they’re all thumbs, Lancaster County 4-H has a program that can teach them how to garden.
The 4-H small garden project sets them up with seeds and plenty of help in getting them well on the way to successful gardening.
By growing gardens of their own, youth involved in the 2016 4-H small garden project experienced first-hand what it means to grow their own food.
