AMERICA’S HARDEST WORKING BOOT SUPPORTS AMERICA’S HARDEST WORKING KIDS IN 4-H

Georgia Boot is a proud partner of the National 4-H Council. We believe every kid should have the opportunity to be #GeorgiaBootStrong and create a better path #Fourward through the hands-on learning experiences that 4-H offers. These programs help build confidence, creativity, leadership, and resiliency, shaping our future leaders.

From now until August of 2023, we will offer various promotions on our website and at select retail partner locations. A portion of sales from these promotions will be donated to National 4-H Council to provide critical resources needed to support the organization’s efforts to empower our youth. Georgia Boot has committed to a minimum donation of $75,000 in 2021, $75,000 in 2022 and $85,000 in 2023.

The webinars will take place from noon to 1 p.m., so bring your lunch!

This first set of three sessions will feature speakers on backyard poultry, mushroom production, and beekeeping. The series will be ongoing, with potential future topics of sheep/beef/goats, seed saving and heirloom varieties, engine conversion to waste vegetable oil, troubleshooting for two-cycle engines, cut flowers, food preservation, small-scale grain milling, and more.
