Garden Camp 2022

On July 26th and 28th, six Jones County 4-H’ers attended 4-H Garden Camp at the Filling Station in Pollocksville, NC. The 4-H agent and Family and Consumer Sciences Agent partnered to offer this program. Youth spent the first half of the day outside in the garden learning about pollinators and their importance in our gardens and food supply, native plants that attract pollinators to our gardens, herbs and their uses in the kitchen and the plant and water cycles.

4-H’ers also planted a raised bed at the Filling Station and their own herb trays to take home to grow for their family to use for meals.

In the afternoon, 4-H’ers went inside to learn kitchen safety skills, nutrition information and food safety. While learning, youth prepared tasty recipes like peach salsa, refrigerator pickles, a garden skillet sizzle and a homemade house salad.

We believe that the life skills learned indoors and outdoors at 4-H Garden Camp will help youth be mindful, safe and successful when it comes to growing, preparing and storing their own food.
