  • 4-H Camp Fun!

    Marion County 4-Hers had a blast during their recent week at 4-H Camp. Eighty-four campers, teen leaders, and adults from Marion County travelled to Lake Cumberland 4-H Camp in Jabez from May 28 through June 1. "Celebrating the Super Hero Within You" was the theme of Marion County's week at 4-H Camp. Camp took place during the Memorial Day holiday so campers had the opportunity to reflect on the "super heroes" that served in the armed forces as well as looking within themselves and recognizing their heroic qualities.

  • Edible Flowers Tasty and Pretty

    I think about food so much this time of the year because vegetables abound.

We are combining our farming efforts to bring food to local families and that includes the pretty things that can be added and eaten in the mix.
