Port St. Joe Elementary School students explore Florida agriculture

Published: Thursday, October 24, 2013 at 10:06 AM.

Since 2010, evaluation results have shown that 67 percent (n=3,484) of youth participants strongly agree that without agriculture, they would not be able to enjoy products such as popcorn, peanut butter, or denim and 81 percent (n=4,212) strongly agreed that the program helped them understand and appreciate how agriculture affects their everyday lives.  Additionally, 45 percent (n=2,340) of participants reported that they planned on sharing with their parents why agriculture is important.

4-H is a youth development program for youth ages 5-18 that is assisted greatly by adult volunteers.  If you are interested in participating as an adult volunteer please contact Melanie Taylor at the Gulf County Extension Office.  Reach her at 639-3200 or metaylor@ufl.edu
