4-H Canada Celebrates 100 Years

2013 is a big year for 4-H Canada, as it’s the year the organization marks 100 years of “learn to do by doing.” Started in Roland, Manitoba, so very long ago, 4-H’s particular style of teaching young farm kids about everything from animal husbandry to woodworking has evolved in recent years to include instruction for a number of skills not necessarily farm related, from photography to scrapbooking and more.

To mark 100 years of head, heart, hands and health, Shannon Benner, newly minted 4-H Canada CEO,  says the group plan a anniversary gala for alumni, current leaders and members and has a one-week youth ag summit lined up for August. In this SoundCloud interview, Benner highlights what people can expect at each event and how to get involved.
