This year’s York-Poquoson Extension 4-H Mums Project had 12 youth participate in the program, according to a press release.
Each participant received 20 mums in May and was taught how to care for them throughout the summer. All 12 completed the program and sold their product at the Yorktown Market Days. While selling their product at Market Days, the kids learned to interact with the public and even helped sell each other’s mums.
The combined earnings for all participants were $1,600. Several of the participants plan to donate a portion of their earnings to charity.
