4-H Program

Grow to Ride

The Grow to Ride 4-H Club brings together youth aged 7-12 from economically challenged neighborhoods to develop personal responsibility through horsemanship, learn the importance of food sustainability and provide service to their communities.

SCG's club offers a variety of meetings, field trips, and a half day summer camp that allow youth to learn about growing food while participating in strengthening our local food system.

Further meeting details can be found on our Events page.

The new 4-H year began on October 1st! There is a 4-H annual enrollment fee of $25 per youth in Greene County with financial assistance available upon request. Enroll online here.

We are seeking donors and sponsors to help provide agricultural learning opportunities for children in our Grow to Ride 4-H Club. Donations cover expenses such as transportation, workshop hosts, snacks, and supplies. Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated! Contact us with questions or to receive assistance enrolling.
