December 7, 2016 – Does your child love food, watching cooking shows, and learning about how food grows? Then the Nevada County 4-H Food and Agriculture Project is the perfect place for them to learn more about what they are passionate about! Youth ages 9 to 13 are invited to join the new 4-H Food and Agriculture project, which offers a great opportunity for youth to develop new knowledge and skills in science, agriculture, gardening, and preparing and tasting new foods, using fun, hands-on activities!
Trained teen teachers will be leading the activities; UC Davis Nutrition student interns and 4-H staff will be facilitating and supporting; and project meetings will start in January. Meetings will be held at the Penn Valley Fire Department and at the neighboring Healthy Harvest Food Bank Garden in Penn Valley.

The 4-H Youth Development Program is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. Youth complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles. In California, the 4-H Program is delivered through the University of California, Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
