LEAF Junior Offers hands-on workshops for youth ages 5-18!

LEAF Junior Workshop Series

Cornell Cooperative Extension has a new opportunity for youth: LEAF Junior! The LEAF, (Learn, Empower, Achieve, Farm), series was created by Katelyn Walley-Stoll, Farm Business Management Educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension. Katelyn’s classes focus on beginning farming and homesteading topics for adult learners. LEAF Junior will offer similarly-styled classes that cater to youth ages 5-18. 

Youth who are not enrolled in 4-H and all youth ages 5-8 must have a parent or guardian accompany them for the entire duration of the class. There is no additional fee for parents or guardians.
