IDEAS, IDEAS, IDEAS!

East Central wants to share some of the innovative ideas clubs are doing across the Region

 Focus on Projects
HOMESTEADING – Crafty Crew 4-H Multi Club

For the 2022/23 4-H season, the Crafty Crew 4-H multi Club is embarking on two new and unique projects.  We have 14 members, and each is working on a Homesteading project or two (either Animal or Non Animal or both).

Each member has picked a project focus (for animal projects we have Pig, Sheep, Laying Chickens and Milking Goats – for non animal projects we’re doing woodworking, small engines, wool working, gardening and cooking).

Over the project year, we will be doing workshops and field trips for each of the project focuses, where all of the members will learn about each others’ choices.

We are adding journals to our record books (for them to keep track of what they’re doing, and to write down questions – we will be providing journaling prompts throughout the year).  At the end of the year, our planned achievement day will be each member bringing their project(s) and setting up a display.

Inspired by Farmfair and the Calgary Stampede display areas, we will invite the community to come in and learn about what the kids are doing.  Each member will then present their projects to the visitors.

Our goal is to let the kids and the community know that super small scale backyard agriculture is possible – and with more and more acreage based 4-H members, this is where our club has been moving to.

Think this is a cool idea? Want more information? Contact Jimilee Ayotte jimilee@butchthecat.com.


Highlighting Awesomeness in the EC Region!

Czar-Metiskow 4-H Club Community Service

The Czar-Metiskow 4-H club chose to support the Bags of Love organization located in Ryley, Alberta.

This organization provides handmade cloth bags filled with a handmade quilt, toiletries, books, stuffies, and games for infants to children in their teens when they are removed from their home for their own safety.

Each club member was to purchase $50 worth of items to be used for the bags. The items were brought to the club’s December meeting. Carol Penman (a local supporter of the organization) gratefully accepted all the items and thanked the members for their generosity.

The club also voted to provide a monetary donation to the organization to be used for purchasing supplies for the handmade quilts and bags.

These bags have been distributed to youth in Camrose, Vegreville, Wainwright, Lloydminster, and the only Edmonton area.

Think this is a cool idea? Want more information? Contact Sylvia Axley Czar-Metiskow 4-H Club/Key Leader Provost District  czarlimo@telus.net

Club Registration Update

If your club has not yet been approved, it’s likely that your leaders are not screened and trained. 4-H Alberta has been working with clubs since October 1st to meet these goals.

  An unapproved club means:
  • members / families haven’t received their welcome email
  • your members may not be eligible to participate beyond the club level
  • your club may not be eligible for provincial funding.

Thank you to all Leaders who have worked so hard to complete training and screening.

We appreciate your dedication and drive to create a safe learning environment for our youth!

Reach out to your local Area Coordinator if you have questions or need help!
