Ministry of Agriculture increases funding to B.C. 4-H Club

Minister of Agriculture Lana Popham visited the local 4-H club at the Cranbrook Community Garden to announce that the Ministry has secured $150,000 in funding for the 2018 to 2019 fiscal year. That marks an increase of $63,000 over previous years and will be used to help more children from around B.C. learn more about agriculture, while also developing the other life skills such as leadership that the 4-H club promotes.

More information and video coming on Monday.
