This past growing season, the Westmount 4-H Club Community Garden donated more than 100 pounds of fresh produce to the Blue Door Soup Kitchen.
Given the success of the initiative, the Sudbury 4-H Club is looking at what else it can do in the city, as well as inspire other youth to take action.
“As a club we were able to accomplish far more than we planned," said Meaghan Ethier, a 4-H youth leader, following a meeting with Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger last week.
"We are asking Mr. Mayor to consider how our youth council can act as role models to help empower more youth in the city so they can also enrich the communities they live in.”
November has been officially proclaimed National 4-H month in Greater Sudbury.
