Learn about 4-H at Nov. 2 open house

Come to the 4-H open house on Nov. 2 from 3:30-6:30 p.m. at the Extension Office at the fairgrounds on U.S. 84.

What will you do at the open house?

You will learn about 4-H and what it has to offer. We have projects from livestock animals to cooking to entomology to sewing. There are more than 20 projects offered in Archuleta County, and I bet we have one just for you.

4-H offers many educational projects for girls and boys from the ages 5-18. Kids are involved in 4-H in the United States, Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the South Pacific. There are so many opportunities for the youngsters in 4-H, such as scholarships, leadership conferences, raising animals, building projects, cooking projects, sewing projects, shooting projects, community service, meeting people from around the world and next door, and much more.

Master Gardener

The Colorado State University Extension Office in Archuleta County is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2012 Colorado Master Gardener (CMG) program until Dec. 30. Students will receive training in tree care, vegetables, soils, native plants, water wise gardening, pruning and much more. The training utilizes on-site and distant education experts to teach a series of eleven classes.

Classes start Jan. 26 and will take place at the Archuleta County Fairgrounds every Thursday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The cost is $240 if you intend to volunteer, $575 for a certificate without volunteer time.

CMG volunteers are expected to complete 50 hours of volunteer time in the first year and 24 hours in subsequent years.
