It’s time to start gardening! And now is the time for your child or children to join the 4-H club at the Chester Ochs 4-H Education Center. This year’s orientation will be August 17 at the Pinellas County Extension Office at 6:30.p.m. You must pre-register your child before coming to orientation as plots are limited. The cost to join the 4-H garden club is $15 per child (registration fee) and $10 per garden plot. Checks should be made out to Pinellas County 4-H Foundation. It would help if applications and fees were mailed to the Extension Office to my attention and to this address: Pinellas County 4-H, 12520 Ulmerton Road, Largo, FL 33774. The forms can be found at:
Once we get started with the garden project, the Ochs 4-H Center will be open Tuesday and Thursdays from 3-5 and Saturday mornings 9-11:30. Most gardeners come for one or two days each week. There will be 4-H club meetings every other week on Tuesdays (4:00) and Saturdays (10:00).
