Program Description:


Are you ready for fun-packed day?

Help wanted – to promote 4-H, and agriculture too, to many visitors at Open Farm Days on Saturday, August 17th at the Farming Smarter site, east of Lethbridge. Farming Smarter is a huge supporter and partner of 4-H within this south region, and they are very knowledgeable about all things agriculture, and pretty fun to hang around with too.  They have invited the South 4-H Region to once again have a presence at this event, popular across the province.  Please connect with Clancy Holthe at if you are available for this fun few hours!  (last year’s booth was a total hit to the over 200 visitors who stopped by, with 4-H sheep and canine displays and demonstrations plus attendees had the opportunity to participate in making a leather bookmark – let’s create another great 4-H booth in 2019, WITH YOUR HELP!)

Open Farm Day August 17 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm


Learning disguised as family fun! Adults and children will have so much fun they won’t realize they’re learning something!

Farming Smarter Reseach site – 211034 Hwy 512, Lethbridge County.

The activity tent tends to be popular and kids can make things to take home.

This day is all about fun learning for people that don’t have a farm to visit in the family! Farming Smarter organizes a carnival-like experience by bringing many exhibitors to one place close to Lethbridge. Open Farm Days gives you an opportunity to come learn about all kinds of farming and the research behind smart farming.

  • Wagon ride into the research plots 
  • Climb on large machinery
  • Talk to 4H leaders, federal and provincial scientists
