FREE Tree Seedlings for Youth
Rockingham 4-H is fortunate enough to receive FREE hardwood tree seedlings for students through generous donors. If you are interested in getting them for your students see the information below and get your order in by Tuesday, January 26th! American Sycamore, Black Locust, Red Maple, and Gray Dogwood will be available.
Another exciting announcement is that Mountain View Elementary School will also have a 4-H Jr Master Gardener After-School Club this fall! More pictures and info to follow once the club starts later this month!
On June 2nd 4-H youth gathered together for the brand new Rocketry Workshop to teach youth about STEM while having fun building and launching their very own rockets! Participants also built a hovercraft out of recycled products and taste tested astronaut pudding, freeze dried ice cream, and the drink Tang.
During my lesson about seeds, students were able to examine different types of seeds, how they travel, and how they grow. To finish off our lesson each student created their own art mosaic made of different colored seeds!
April and May are busy days for myself but I enjoy them more than any other month because I get to be outside! Another reason I love spring so much is all the Farm to School Days I get to attend. Several schools in Rockingham County host a Farm to School Day for students to learn more about where their food comes from and general agriculture. Keister Elementary, Stone Spring Elementary, Lacey Spring Elementary, and Plains Elementary School are just a few to name.
