This January, the 4-H Middle Ground Homeschool Gardening Club was chartered with 8 new 4-Hers eager to learn all about gardening. The group is connected through a few different triangle homeschool groups and is led by two amazing volunteers, Rhonda and Angela. These two women have a combined 20+ years of homeschooling experience and are thrilled to begin their 4-H journey!
Four women stand under text that says Club Leaders at the 4-H State Volunteer leaders Conference.Along with learning about seed germination, growing, planting and pollinators at the Briggs Ave Community Garden, this group is growing their garden network by volunteering each month with Urban Community Agronomics (UCAN). UCAN is a community garden in North Durham and has regular many workdays ideal for your getting your 4-H club community service projects in!
A group of children and volunteers pose together.Rhonda shares that she wanted to join 4-H because “community is an important component of home school success, and STEAM activities are best taught in group settings. 4-H is a way to combine community, service, learning and leadership for our youth. We want all homeschoolers, especially homeschoolers of color, to gain as much exposure to life skills and leadership.”

Durham is excited for this new 4-H club and the impact these middle school leaders are already having in our community. We’re also excited for the mushroom logs they just inoculated last week!
