Cloverbuds is the name of the Arizona 4-H educational program for youth five to eight years of age. Youth of this age group enroll ONLY in this project and all activities are non-competitive. Cloverbuds explore, through small groups, various learning experiences that are fun, hands-on and discovery-oriented for their age-appropriate skills and abilities. Curriculum has specifically been selected and is somewhat different than those of the traditional 4-H program. It is important for those working with the Cloverbuds program to be trained in the philosophy and guidelines for this program. The following publications provide the necessary information and guidelines for conducting a Cloverbuds project.
