4-H Program

Grow to Ride

4-H kids learn to ride horses under the guidance of experienced riding instructors and explore farming careers through monthly meetings and a week long summer camp. They learn how to care for our community orchard, build healthy soil and go to market with produce and value added products made in our community kitchen. Scholarships for 4-H membership and summer camp are available.

Funded through partnerships with the Springfield Greene County Park Board.
