The Christian County 4-H program is partnering with the Christian County YMCA and their summer program to offer during the summer classes to help teach kids about where the food they eat comes from, and how they can eat and grow food locally.
Peggy Hampton, 4-H Youth and Development Educator with the U of I Extension Office discussed the partnership, including details on when the classes will take place.
The classes will teach the kids taking the classes about locally grown food, and will give them a chance to grow their own foods as well.
Parents who are interested in signing their children up for the classes can do so at the Christian County YMCA through their summer program. Hampton appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
