"Barn and Pasture Club" is for kids in grades 2-6. This club for younger students focuses on animals in "Barns and Pastures." This means our group will learn about and develop projects focusing on all the animals on the farm, though they will not be handling any beef animals (for their safety). 4-H meets every Thursday from 4:00-5:30 PM. Children taking the bus from Freeport arriving a few minutes earlier will be met by our 4-H Leaders.
This semester, our club is co-led by Andy LeClerc and Caroline Wild. Both Andy and Caroline have been a part of the farm for two years, teaching visitors about food production and ecology. Andy and Caroline are passionate and knowledgable when it comes to farming and education and very excited for the upcoming 4-H season.
Our year is divided into semesters. Winter/Spring semester begins February 13 and runs until June 12. We will not meet during the weeks of Winter Vacation or April Vacation. We will break for one week in June, then begin sessions again into summer for those students looking to carry projects into the Fall fair season for show. Right now, we’re only asking students to make one semester commitment at a time.
This year, we are asking parents to contribute $6 a week to help cover our costs for the program. By charging a small fee for the program, we’ll be able to ensure the club has the materials and supplies it needs, and to expand on our exploration and learning.
