Grow Your Vegetables and Eat Them Too!

Where? Why at the Ochs Garden 4-H Club, of course! Members of this 4-H club not only learn to grow vegetables, but to appreciate and eat them as well. Vegetable gardening is very popular and it is no wonder. Gardening gets the family outside and away from the screens. The benefits include physical activity, the joys of watching the garden grow, and the best tasting vegetables around!
