4-H Canada is launcing its first-ever national fundraising campaign, in partnership with Veseys Seeds.
Developed in consultation with 4-H youth members and volunteer leaders across Canada, the initiative will give 4-H’ers the opportunity to explore the joys of gardening, and develop hands-on leadership and fundraising skills through the sale of seeds, bulbs, and roots.
Organizers says interested 4-H regions, counties and clubs can sign up online until the fall.
Sixty per cent of their retail sales will go back into supporting 4-H in Canada, with over half of the profit staying local.
For the first time, a national fundraiser will benefit all levels of the 4-H movement – from grassroots to provincial and national organizations – thus strengthening and ensuring a thriving, bright future for 4-H in Canada.
