Sowing Up Summer

The final weeks of extra daylight, muggy weather, and dancing fireflies are on the march. But Polk County 4-H is trying to squeeze every last drop of Summer from the season before Autumn arrives.

One way we’ve done that is with our final 4-H Summer project of the season: Sowing Up Summer. Polk County 4-H provided all the supplies families would need to complete four unique horticulture education projects including:

  • Making biodegradable paper plant pots
  • Growing a character grass head
  • Constructing clay-based seedballs
  • Creating a hypertufa plant container

Families who signed up were able to pick up all the supplies and instructions at the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Polk County. We’re looking forward to seeing pictures of the final projects from our 4-H participants!
