Chisago County 4-H is offering two options to explore learning this spring and summer.

Garden with us

Meet together with other youth at a Community Garden in North Branch or Rush City to grow vegetables and create a pollinator friendly garden!

Each week you’ll have a different topic and project to explore as you take your learning from seed to table. All youth participating with us at the garden will receive a free Grow with 4-H T-shirt and be eligible to win other raffle prizes.

Garden at home

For those who want to start their own garden at home, you’ll have weekly activities and kits you can pick-up at the regional libraries (Chisago Lakes, North Branch, Rush City and Wyoming) or they can send them to you via email. Some common household supplies will be needed to complete all of the activities.

To extend your learning, meet with 4-H staff and volunteers on select dates at the local libraries to ask questions and share your progress by submitting us photos and stories! Entries will be submitted for raffle prizes!

How to join?

How much does it cost?
