We talk about what 4-H has given one Calgary area residenT, who competes in 4-H Rodeo coming up on Rural Roots Canada, where we get to the Stem and Meat of Agriculture.
4-H members know all about growth, they see their projects grow over the course of the year. However, by the time it comes to an end for the year, it pales in comparison to the growth they themselves achieve.
In this Rural Roots Canada Episode: We find out the advantages of knowing your crop and pasture soil inside and out from a soil expert from New Zealand and we catch up to a few 4-H kids from the Calgary area on Show and Sale day to talk about their projects
Chance Hofstra is in his final year with 4-H, a program that has been a part of his life for the past 12 years. The 21-year-old says 4-H has given him a lot more than how to manage and care for a dairy project.
There was plenty of energy, excitement, sense of responsibility, camaraderie at this year’s 4-H on Parade event at the Calgary Stampede grounds this year. The event, which brings together youth from eight different 4-H clubs, is a favourite among the participants.
