Fall is a good time to submit a soil sample for analysis to determine if plants will benefit from applications of lime and/or fertilizer. Soil sample boxes are available from the Shelby County MU Extension office, where samples can be submitted at a cost of $15 per sample. For more information on soil sampling, visit the Soil and Plant Testing Laboratory web page.
4-H is a community of young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H is young people making new friends and memories while preparing to be leaders of today and tomorrow. We are a volunteer-led organization that reaches boys and girls through small groups called clubs. 4-H members choose from over 40 projects in which to participate. Most projects use hands-on learning experiences to teach subject matter and life-skills such as cooperation, leadership and decision-making — skills that can be applied over and over for a lifetime. Contact Lesley Daniel at DanielLB@missouri.edu or (573) 633-2640 to learn how to join a 4-H club near you.
