If you missed the fun today at the Virginia Beach Farmer's Market, here is a short snippet of the fun we had. The 4-H table was a hit and over 80 people stopped by to eat a bug. And the 4-H Foragers Bee Club was on location educating and talking to people interested in learning the craft, importance, and joy of beekeeping. Visit our website to contact this club and our other Va Beach 4-H Clubs. We do big things in the city of Va Beach. Join the Revolution of 4-H. :-)



Va Beach 4-H can bring lessons on bugs (decomposers and life cycles of bugs) to classrooms and Homeschool groups throughout the city. Call our office at 757-385-4769. Eating bugs not a requirement. LOL 😆

The 4-H table was buzzzzzzing today at the SE VA Hokie Bug Fest. I could barely snap pictures of everyone who stopped by to learn about millipedes, cicadas, stag beetles, and Madagascar hissing cockroaches. But these were two kind folks who accepted the challenge and ate a bug today. Over 70 folks stopped by to taste the future of protein alternatives. LOL

Outdoor Adventures with Parks And Rec this week proved to be rewarding. Youth participants explored the outdoor world for what they didn’t know was there if only they looked. The hunt for cicadas led the kids to discover cicada nymphs molting, moving up trees post ground emergence, and the discovery of empty nymph shells. It is so much fun to see the excitement in kids faces when they discover something new.

Virginia Beach 4-H Embryology Project

Once again Virginia Beach 4-H has conducted the Embryology Project with teachers across the city. Over 1600 students have been able to learn about the animal life cycle through the hatching of chicken eggs. Teachers engaged students in the hands-on process of monitoring and documenting data, maintaining the proper conditions needed to hatch eggs in an incubator, and then caring for the newly hatched chicks before returning them to the 4-H office. Students also learn compassion and caring through participating in this project. What an amazing way to learn!!

Celebrate Agriculture Day was a huge hit. It was great to show the public how Agriculture takes us from the "Farm to the Closet." We had lambs on hand to show where wool comes from, alpaca, silk, and bamboo fabric to show the extreme diversity of agriculture fiber production. And of course, Creme Brulee were there to show where angora fiber comes from....they are French Angora rabbits after all. Thank you to Leigh Henderson for bringing the lambs and Benson Alpaca Meadows
Benson Alpaca Meadows for the amazing fibers and Macaw feathers. Thank you Craft Club for demonstrating how feathers gave us the design for zippers and helping our visitors make their own feather pens. Thank you Teens for your time today tending to the animals and teaching the public all about how Agriculture helps to keep us clothed and warm.

School partnerships with VB Schools is amazing!! At Parkway we began a series called Surviving Jamestown. Through our Environmental Education kit, we helped 4th grade students learn how sustainable agriculture practices and skills helped Jamestown survive. They also learned a thing or two about tracking animals through s**t I.D. and animal track I.D.

4-H is amazing and so are Parkway 4th grade Science teachers. https://twitter.com/VaBeach4H/status/1503783522368204801?s=20&t=8a0K3ZWE9YxgCjVU4gOg5g

This organization has the right idea! Young people are the future and teaching them life skills to aid in their success is vital! I recently found a resource that talks about the importance of younger generations, and I would like to share it! It’s a book and upcoming documentary titled The Revolution Generation: How Millennials Can Save America and the World. Each generation has played a part in fighting for political change and progressivism. Currently, the younger generations are the ones leading this fight. Teaching our youth leadership and citizenship is the means for an inclusive, equal, and just society. This film truly empowers the audience and has significant implications for younger generations. It comes out on April 22nd, and I can’t wait! If you’re interested in learning more, I linked the trailer below!
Hello! I am a local coordinator for Greenheart, a non-profit Student Exchange company. I help out in finding host families for their students, and I am posting this in hope of reaching someone who would be interested in finding out more about hosting or who could refer someone else who might be interested. I know host families are out there, I just need a little help in finding them. Students are excited to start their American experience, and we have a lot of great students. Please feel free to PM me if you would like more info. We also offer $200.00 gift card for each referral. I would appreciate if you could share this message on your page. Thank you!

Camp Millionaire Day 4: Reality sets in...Reality Stores, that is. The campers are learning about how real life as grown-ups works by being given random versions of their future selves...jobs, kids, families as well as pitfalls, challenges and other unexpected expenses that may come their way. Thanks again, Virginia Beach Schools Federal Credit Union, Virginia Beach 4-H, MassMutual Commonwealth, ABNB and Virginia Beach City Government for partnering with us!
Camp Millionaire day 3 continues with special presentations by Charlotte, one of last year's campers who now has made a business out of selling her own handmade bracelets known as Charlotte's Charms. Everyone also learned about investing and automobile depreciation! Busy day but the smiles keep coming! Thanks again to Virginia Beach Schools Federal Credit Union, MassMutual Commonwealth Virginia Beach 4-H and City of Virginia Beach for partnering with us again this year!
So what's in store for Camp Millionaire day 3? Well, before learning about credit and loans, depreciation, good vs. bad debt, assets vs. liabilities and saving and investing...we dance! Virginia Beach Schools Federal Credit Union MassMutual Commonwealth Virginia Beach 4-H
