Thank you!

Thank you to those who have connected their Kroger Plus card to support the Greene County 4-H. Kroger donates a portion of what you spend at Kroger back to our organization and this is no additional cost to you as a Kroger customer!
If you are not connected to another organization and shop at Kroger, connect your Kroger Plus card at any time so that the Greene County 4-H earns funds to help them with their events, programs, and more!

Project Book Update

As a reminder, we have many project books in stock at our office.  Please email Pat at to hold the book.

We’ve got you covered with LOTS of ways to obtain project books this year!

  • Download one for free. Select from a dozen popular titles in the Perfect Stay-at-Home Projects collection. Click on the book you want, and when the file opens on your screen, save or print it from there. This year, a selection of 4‑H Cloverbud activities is available too. (For accessible formats of these publications, visit
  • Order and pick up project books in your county office. If you would rather purchase a printed copy of a Perfect Stay-at-Home Project or any other project book, check with your club advisor and county educator. Ohio residents get the best price on printed books when they order and pick up their purchases through local Extension offices.
  • Buy one online. Like last year, you also can order directly from Ohio residents receive free shipping on orders of $20 or more with the coupon FREE2021. Books cost slightly more this way, but orders can be shipped directly to any Ohio address. There is no restriction on the number of times a coupon can be used.  See our printable Ordering Is Easy instructions. Please review your order carefully. Extension Publishing is not able to accept returns.
  • Make your own. Self-determined projects are an excellent choice for self-motivated members eager to get started by creating their own projects. Although self-determined projects may be better suited for older 4-H members, they are available for any member and are often based on idea starters already available online. Many of the idea starters are great stay-at-home projects too, for example, Music, Bats, String Art, Climate Change, American Sign Language, etc. Learn about the best of current circumstances with My Own Stay-at-Home Project. (For project judging, self-determined projects are judged in self-determined categories.)
