Maine 4-H is offering a summer series, 4-H Fridays on the Farm, to connect teens with local agriculture. Current 4-H enrollment is not necessary for participation. Program materials and instruction are free.
The goal of 4-H Fridays on the Farm is to expose teens ages 12–18 to Maine agriculture and provide an environment for youth to explore careers in agriculture. Teens may participate in one session or join us for all of them. Each session will include a tour of operations and opportunities to gain hands-on experience and consider their role in the Maine Food System.
Upcoming 4-H Fridays on the Farm events include:
August 5, 2022: Lone Spruce Farm, Dedham, ME
August 12, 2022: Pumpkin Vine Family Farm, Somerville, ME
August 19, 2022: McDougal Orchards, Springvale, ME
