West Virginia 4-H is excited to offer additional virtual 4-H Special Interest (SPIN) clubs for 2022. These virtual 4-H SPIN clubs will focus on different topic areas and will last between four to six sessions.

These 4-H SPIN clubs are open to 4-H members. Be sure to read each club description to determine which age groups are invited to participate. Each club is a little different. Some clubs are designed to help 4-H members with their project work, but not all of them. All youth are welcome to join a SPIN club to learn, no matter their project area!

Spring is just around the corner! So it's time to start thinking about getting outside and digging in the dirt as we garden! All you need to join us for this Vegetable Gardening Club is an interest in growing your own vegetables!

We will take care of the rest as we plant cucumbers, design trellises to help our cucumbers grow, and learn yummy recipes to help us enjoy our cucumbers (and other vegetables) all season long!

Participants will receive a gardening box filled with supplies needed to grow and harvest cucumbers throughout the season.
