We have started a 4-H club at McArthur HS in Hollywood FL. We are having a “Summer of Growing” with 20 members, all from the AgScience program run by Vincent Newman. our 4-H agent put together a project book and we have a permaculture specialist that together with a few others are going to host a weekly zoom session. We have given them all 4-5 cuttings or seeds, pots and soil so they can grow at home. We plan to have weekly discussion about composting, what they are growing, uses, etc. to keep them engaged and continue to develop their green thumbs so that when we resume at some point they will be at a higher level of understanding and appreciation of plants and growing food and fiber in our climate. We are expecting them to document this project with photos and measurements and put together a final presentation which will be judged at the next county fair.
