Youth from the DC 4-H Club participated in the USDA Farmers Market Back to School Night on September 15, 2015, where they had the opportunity to educate market shoppers about the programs and activities available through the District's 4-H program, which is managed by the UDC CAUSES Center for 4-H and Youth Development.
USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service has managed the weekly daytime USDA Farmers Market in Southwest Washington, D.C. for 20 years. However, this year, the USDA Farmers Market team is experimenting with a series of night markets on the third Friday of the month from May through October.
In the last month, the 4-Hers also participated in the DC State Fair and the Teen Council conducted a leadership workshop at a 4-H retreat hosted at Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg, Virginia.
For more information about the District's 4-H program, contact Rebecca Bankhead.
