The annual Indiana Small Farm Conference and trade show will take place on March 1-3. Registration is now open.
"The opioid crisis has greatly affected rural communities," said Angie Abbott, associate director of Purdue Extension and program leader for Health and Human Sciences Extension. "We see this symposium as a way to build awareness and forge effective partnerships among organizations and individuals to address this dire public health emergency."
The 4-H Clover Connection is a monthly newsletter produced by the 4-H Youth Development Extension Educator and the Purdue Extension Office in Steuben County.
For many, if not most 4-H youth, the culmination of the program year focuses on project evaluation, or what is commonly known as 4-H project judging. By way of a judges clinic held in Northeast Indiana, the pool of volunteers enlarges and adds to the diversity of adults volunteering to positively influence youth.
Join the Club! 4-H is the largest youth serving organization in the country. 4-H programs are hands-on, age-appropriate, and university-based. 4-H helps youth improve their self-confidence, learn responsibility and subject matter, and develop leadership, citizenship, communication, and decision-making skills that can be applied over a lifetime.
