High Country 4-H
The High Country Team 4-H Club of Los Alamos sent three members and two junior instructors at the end of March to the 2022 New Mexico State Home Economics School in Albuquerque.
This two-day workshop offered our 4-H’ers a chance to learn more about some of the project areas offered within 4-H including sewing, baking, ceramics, STEM activities, photography and outdoor cooking, as well as opportunities to meet other members across the state while completing service project and team building actives.
This year our club members attended clinics in baking and outdoor cooking. We also had two junior instructors who assisted in the Baking Basics program, which was led by our Los Alamos NMSU Extension Agents.
4‑H is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. For more than 100 years, 4‑H has welcomed young people of all beliefs and backgrounds, giving kids a voice to express who they are and how they make their lives and communities better.
