4H - Extension News

The St. Clair County Farmers Federation was unable to host their annual Farm-City Banquet last November because of the pandemic. Farm-City Week was celebrated Nov. 20-26, 2020. "Sweet Grown Alabama" was chosen as the theme. 

The main goal of Farm-City Week is to broaden the understanding of the relationship between rural farmers and urban workers. 

County farm-city committees educate their communities through outreach events and student contests, all centered around the year's theme. 4-H’ers from across St. Clair County did participate in both the Farm-City poster and essay contest and we would like to proudly announce our 2020 winners:
