  • 4-H Camp; sign your child up today

    4-H Camp is a great way to fill those lazy summer days. At 4-H Camp, young people learn independence, responsibility, have a lot of fun and make many friends.

    4-H camps are open to all Kentucky youth between the ages of 9 and 14. Many exciting activities and adventures await campers. 4-H’ers can spend their days participating in activities ranging from swimming to nature hikes. Not only do many children find these activities fun, but they will likely learn new skills and develop a greater appreciation for the environment and wildlife.

We have received multiple requests for information on raising asparagus over the last couple of weeks here in the extension office.
