4-H Plant & Environmental Sciences Program

Plant and Environmental Sciences Team (PEST)-Provides hands-on learning activities that build horticultural skills and promote stewardship of our natural resources and environment.

Join the Nasturtium Riot!

Everyone is invited to bring their container gardens to display at the 4-H Plant Science tent during the 4-H Youth Fair.

Here is your chance to show off your beautiful pot of nasturtiums, win prizes and have fun.

Prizes for winners in many categories will be awarded on Saturday, July 30th.

Why nasturtiums? They
- are sooooo excitingly beautiful
- attract hummingbirds (think of a hanging basket)
- come in a variety of forms and colors and
- are easy and fun to grow in the summer
