Growing North Carolina Youth in Crop Science, Entomology, Horticulture, and Soils
Welcome all plant geeks and mud-pie makers! For those of you that enjoy tickling sensitive plants, get excited about squishing soil in your fingers, munching on begonias, stalking walking sticks, building corn forts, and making frog bellies (from sedum of course!), get ready to explore a world that brims with mysteries waiting to be discovered by YOU!
The Grow For It program is part of North Carolina Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Development program. We hope the resources, projects, workshops provided will grow your own local programming efforts to engage youth in positive learning experiences that spark their curiosity for a lifetime.
