Each year, on 4-H day, we highlight Georgia 4-H and our partnership with UGA Cooperative Extension Service. On Thursday, July 18, all are welcome to join us for a day full of fun activities representing the 4-H focus areas of Agriculture and STEMHealthy Living, and Civic Engagement. Meet a cow at the Mobile Dairy, learn how to do a pollinator census, join AHC staff demonstrating beekeeping, historic farming practices, and more! Come by and see what the nation’s largest youth development program is doing at Atlanta History Center. This event is open to the public, and tickets are included in the cost of admission.

The office provides assistance in agriculture and environmental science, family and consumer science, and youth development to everyone in the local area.

Atlanta History Center’s own 4-H Community Club is a free youth program for children in grades K through 12. Open to all youth who live in or go to school in Fulton County, the club meets once a month for community service, learning, and fun.

Georgia 4-H is the youth component of UGA Extension, which is part of the University of Georgia. It is directed by the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and is provided as a public service by the office of Cooperative Extension.

In addition to 4-H, the Extension office offers lifelong learning, especially related to gardening and agriculture.
