It’s that time of year again when Orange County 4-H club members are selling beautiful poinsettias for holiday decorating. As always, our poinsettias are floral quality and value priced for such beautiful plants. We will offer four, six and eight inch pot size red poinsettias, as well as white and pink in the six inch size. All come with festive foil pot covers and protective sleeves to keep them in top condition until delivered to the purchaser. Of course we will also offer the ever popular Poinsettia Mum bowls! These make fabulous center pieces and great holiday gifts. This year we have an added option of ordering poinsettias to be shared with a local senior living center. You can simply choose that option online or through a 4-H member and we will handle the delivery for you.
Supporting 4-H Youth Participation
Ordering festive poinsettias from 4-H supports our youth development efforts by funding scholarships to attend camp and leadership events, providing awards through our Standards of Excellence program, and supporting youth traveling for competitive events. Research confirms that the more deeply engaged youth are in positive youth development activities, the greater the desired long-term impacts. Our goal is to ensure that financial need will not prevent participation in any of our valuable opportunities.
Orders are being accepted through November 12th either by online using this link: https://oc4hpoinsettia.eventbrite.com or by placing an order through one of our local 4-H clubs. Plants will be available for pick-up on December 3 and 4 at the Extension Center or delivery by the 4-H member with whom you made your order. Please consider supporting our positive youth development efforts for 2020-21 while you add holiday cheer to your home.
