Description

This is a day camp about Urban Agriculture put on by UF/IFAS Pinellas County 4-H, open to all youth ages 9-13.

Camp will be 9am to 3pm every day. Early drop off, at 8:30am if needed.

Learn about growing your own food in your backyard and about careers in urban agriculture.

Camp costs $45 for the week for early registration and $55 for late.

This camp will cover topics such as:

  • Aquaculture

  • Hydroponics

  • Aquaponics

  • Beekeeping

  • Backyard chickens and rabbits

  • Careers in agriculture

  • And many more!

Campers will get to go on a field trip to an aquaculture lab: http://tal.ifas.ufl.edu/

We will have speakers from many innovative, urban agriculture industries, including local farmers and business owners, and do activities teaching the participants how to do some urban farming in their own backyards or even in their own future businesses!

Who can participate?: Any youth ages 9-13. Campers do NOT have to be current 4-H members to attend.

How to enroll: Register and pay on Eventbrite. If you are not a current 4-H member, create a profile on www.4honline.com and select the "City Cultivators Club". Instructions can be found here: http://florida4h.org/4honline/files/Instructions-for-4-H-Online-Enrollment.pdf

Do not pay the $25 dues on the 4honline website, since it is a camp.
