Aqua-Sprouts 4-H Club at Allison Woods Outdoor Learning Center

Aqua-Sprouts 4-H Club began their year round project Fruits, Vegetables, and Community in 2018 as a collaboration between Iredell County 4-H and the Outdoor Learning Center!

Your child will learn about:

  • Raised Bed Gardening

  • Container Gardening
Meetings will contain lessons such as:
  • Water and Soil Quality Testing
  • Photosynthesis
  • Water Cycle
  • Parts of a Plant
  • Plant Life Cycles
  • And More!
Students are responsible for planting, caring, measuring, and harvesting the produce!

Aqua-Sprouts meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of every month from 6:00-7:00pm at Allison Woods Outdoor Learning Center.
