Ohio's 4-H Cloverbud Program is for youth age 5 and in Kindergarten through 2nd grade. Cloverbuds are children who explore areas of healthy lifestyle, earth/environment, citizenship, plants and animals, consumerism and Family Science, science and technology, personal development, and community expressive arts. The primary goal of the Cloverbud Program is to promote children's healthy development - mentally, physically, socially and emotionally.

The Cloverbud Program provides an excellent opportunity for children to reach his or her highest potential because early life experience, even subtle ones, affects future development.

There is a County-wide Cloverbud Club that meets at the Union County Agricultural Center.  For more information on the county-wide club, see the link in the left hand column.
