Belfast — Through Feb. 20, Maine Farmland Trust Gallery is hosting an exhibit compiled by several youth members of Waldo County 4-H. Under the supervision of Marilyn Schofield, Nicole, Shaynen and Mackensie Schofield put together a pictorial overview of 4-H activities that center around agriculture, food preservation and wood science.
Viewers can see not only photographs of 4-H clubs working with animals or learning the ropes of food preservation, but also a collection of drawings by the Cloverbuds, the youngest 4-H club. Some 4-H youth members have created specific educational displays that cover a certain topic such as the growth of a lamb or poultry farming. The exhibit is an opportunity to see what Waldo County’s 4H is up to.
