MOULTRIE — During the week of the Georgia National Fair, 4-H agent Zona Medley and 4-H program assistants Caroline Horne and Kimberly Dove took more than 50 students to Perry to spend the day learning about 4-H projects and riding all the wild rides. 4-H’ers were everywhere covered in green and white representing 4-H and all it stands for. The 7th and 8th grade 4-H’ers were pulled aside to experience The Seed Survivor Booth in order to build their portfolios and learn more about watershed, erosion and nutrients in the soil, and they even planted their own sunflower to take home. Above, senior 4-H’er Ashley Carroll teaches 7th and 8th graders at The Seed Survivor Booth.
