4‑H is a Community

4‑H is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. Kids complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles. Kids experience 4‑H in every county and parish in the country—through in-school and after-school programs, school and community clubs and 4‑H camps. Click here to learn more about 4H.

City Slicker Farms After-School 4H Program

City Slicker Farms created a club at the West Oakland Farm Park to give West Oakland children and youth an opportunity to learn about urban agriculture, animal husbandry, and leadership. The group will participate in a variety of projects throughout the year at the West Oakland Farm Park. The group is currently studying butterflies and other pollinators that benefit the natural environment. 

If you're interested in getting involved as a volunteer, participant, or supporter, please contact us at 4hclub@cityslickerfarms.org.
