Trimble Hot Chili Peppers 4 H Club

Supported by CFI’s Edible Schoolyard Project, the Trimble Hot Chili Peppers 4 H Garden Club provides its young members with sustainable agricultural skills in raising plants for food and profit (and ecological benefit), as well as the culinary skills necessary to create healthy and nutritious meals from their very own harvest.

The club is seeking individuals interested in helping out with the club and implementing lessons in the gardens, classroom, and kitchen. According to Project Coordinator, Molly Jo Stanley, “We are especially seeking an individual interested in registering with 4H as an advisor.  It is a simple process with great rewards.”

The club, known as the Trimble Hot Chili Peppers, focuses on giving the youth members sustainable agricultural skills in raising plants for food and profit (and ecological benefit), as well as culinary skills necessary to create healthy and nutritious meals from their very own harvest.

Their first meeting will be held on Monday, January 10th at 2pm at Trimble Middle School. It will be a casual introductory meeting where the group will organize ideas for 2011, make some food, and possibly plan their garden designs. The group will be meeting twice per month until August with most of the meetings held at 2pm on Mondays.

If you are interested in mentoring these talented, young green thumbs, or learning more about this program and the opportunities within it, please inquire by contacting Molly Jo at mollyjocfi@frognet.net or call 740-593-5971.
