In celebration of 100 years of preparing young British Columbians with agriculture learning and leadership, the B.C. government has presented B.C. 4-H with $87,000 and a Century Farm Award.
The funding grant will support B.C. 4-H programs that help build youth development and leadership in local B.C. 4-H clubs throughout the province.
“The B.C. 4-H program is devoted to our young people and introducing them to the agricultural community. I look forward to continuing our partnership with 4-H as youth programs continue to grow and more young British Columbians take an interest in expanding their knowledge about farming and agriculture,” said Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick.
