Jackson County 4-H to offer local foods and farm to table class


Do you want to learn more about your local farms or are you interested in learning about new ways to grow food? Do you like cheese?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then the Local Foods and Farm to Table SPARK Club is for you.

Participants will have the chance to learn about the importance of pollinators in their habitats and ecosystems. Local farmers and producers also are going to teach participants about farm operations and how food goes from the farm to the kitchen table. There also will be lessons about growing plants with no soil using an aeroponic grow tower and making cheese from scratch.

This activity is open to all Jackson County youth in grades 3 to 12, regardless of their involvement in the Jackson County 4-H program.

The session is set from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. June 24 at the Jackson County Courthouse, 111 S. Main St., Brownstown. Lunch will be provided.

Instructions for registration for non-4-H members are available at v2.4honline.com. There is a one-time $20 fee for non-4-H-members that can be paid while processing their enrollment.

4-H members may register for free by logging into their 4-H Online profile by visiting v2.4honline.com.

The deadline to register is June 17. Contact the extension office at 812-358-6101 by June 10 if your child needs special accommodations to participate or you have questions about the program.
