City Farmers to Host City Heights 4H

We're excited to host the very first City Heights 4H Club at City Farmers!

First Meeting of the City Heights 4H Club

In 4-H, youth design and participate in their own programs and activities. This unique learn-by-doing model teaches essential skills that they will use throughout their lives, such setting goals, self-reflection, adapting to new situations, communicating, and responding to the needs of others.

Their goals are to help young people reach their full potential as competent, confident leaders of character who contribute and are connected to their communities and environment.

The City Heights 4H club is a new club forming this year. Individuals do not need to live in City Heights to participate. In fact, we encourage anyone living in surrounding or urban neighborhoods to join us. 

Each year, a 4-H club member enrolls in at least one project. As members gain experience, the size of the project may be increased or additional projects may be selected.  Some project groups meet once a week, while others might meet once or twice a month. Please note, 4H is a club that can offer various projects based on our skills and youth interest. 

Inaugural meeting date: Thursday, September 1, 2016

Time: 5:30 – 6:30 pm

Place: City Farmers nursery - 3110 Euclid Ave, San Diego 92105
