Horticulture Judging Practice Begins!!

Buncombe County 4-H members are invited to become part of the 4-H Horticulture Judging Team.  All youth ages 9-19 are invited to participate in practices to prepare for the State 4-H Horticulture Contest ( July 18, 2011) which tests youth on fundamental horticulture knowledge, plant identification ability and judging know-how.

Brandon Christopher of the Sandy Mush 4-H club will be leading the practices and sharing his knowledge and expertise of the contest.  The team will be working throughout the spring in preparations for the summer contest.

The first practice for the 4-H Horticulture Judging Team will take place on Friday, March 4th from 3:30-5:00 p.m. at the Buncombe County Extension Center, 94 Coxe Ave, Asheville.  If you are interested in attending the contest please email Holly Jordan at holly_jordan@ncsu.edu to sign up.  We want to make sure we have enough materials available for everyone who plans to attend.  If you have further questions, please contact the Buncombe County Extension Office at (828) 255-5522.
