Youth should enroll for the Special Garden Project through 4-H Online. Once enrolled through 4-H Online, youth are then to call their local office to let them know they enrolled for the project. By enrolling through 4-H Online, youth will have access to the shared folder with the educational materials including the growing newsletter & evaluation. Please double check the number of youth enrolled through 4H Online so enough seeds are ordered for the county.

Counties will be responsible for ordering the seeds. To order seeds: Complete the Google form (https://go.unl.edu/2023sgporder) by January 15th how many youth you think will participate. The cost to enroll in the project will be around $0.50/youth.
