On June 9, 2021 Washington County 4-H purchased their 4-H Utility trailer. Due to Covid and hurricanes in our area, Utility trailers have been very hard to find and the price had increased tremendously since our 2020 quote. Fortunately for WC 4-H, we were able to find and purchase a utility trailer from G & D Farms in Grove Hill, Alabama. This trailer was found just in time for our office to transport 51 campers luggage and supplies to Columbiana on June 28-30, 2021.
This was an absolute blessing to me and others at our little vegetable farm. Some of the monies were utilize to procure educational classes that will be available to us for a lifetime. Organic farming is challenging to say the least and this proven successful methodology will be completely beneficial to not only us but others that will be taught.
Other monies were utilized to procure irrigation equipment to be used in and environmentally friendly application. Well conserving water and controlling any erosion possibilities.
We cannot thank ALA-TOM enough for this huge shot in the arm.

HIPPY and PAT are home visiting programs that work directly with parents to help them become their child’s “first teacher”. One of the requirements of both programs is to hold monthly group meetings/connections to offer additional assistance in meeting the needs of the parents and children. During this time the children are worked with on a variety of skills. STEAM activities will allow us to reinforce skills already being taught in the homes through HIPPY and PAT, thus better preparing our children for their future academic success. Our focus is that childen learn through play naturally. Having these activities will allows us to be proactive in their learning by providing the basics of what they will need in their future.
