2024 Special Garden Project

Princess of India Nasturtium

The focus of the 2024 project is the Princess of India Nasturtium. This Victorian-era heirloom flower can be grown in a variety of ways including in containers. It provides a splash of color from its scarlet flowers and much of the plant can be eaten..

Enroll for Horticulture in 4honline then contact the Nebraska Extension Office and let them know how many seed packets you need.  If you do not contact your local Extension Office, seeds might not be available for you.  The county office will order seeds as a county unit then distribute them to the members.

This project is open to all youth of 4-H age and it will give them the opportunity to learn about growing, harvesting, and exhibiting this unique vegetable.

The Special Gardening Project lets 4-H members try their hand at growing unusual vegetables and flowers. The project allows experienced 4-H gardeners to grow something fun, new, and different while letting those new to gardening get their feet wet in this project area.

4-H members enrolled in the Special Garden Project will:

  • Receive a ‘packet’ of seeds (one packet per youth) in March/April
  • Review regular project newsletters and resources as they become available. These materials will help guide you through the project experiences, solve problems, and prepare your projects for exhibition.
  • Be able to exhibit this unique flower at County and State Fair:
  1. State Fair Special Garden Project Educational Exhibit Class G-775-001
  2. State Fair Special Garden Project Fresh Cut Flowers or Harvested Vegetables G-775-002
  • Other fun county only ways to exhibit this unique flower like a story, poem, or poster. Each county is different so be sure to check with your local Extension Office.
  • Complete an evaluation about their growing experience.

2024 Special Agronomy Project

The Nebraska Extension Special Agronomy Project gives 4-H members an opportunity to experience a crop that is grown, was grown or has the potential to be grown in Nebraska. Youth participate by receiving seed and resources to grow the crop, research traits of the crop and determine the viability of that crop in the part of the state they live. The project allows 4-H members interested in agronomy to grow something fun, new, and different. This year, we honor a crop grown in the panhandle!

In the fourth year of the special agronomy project, youth will explore sugar beets!  Sugar beets are a major contributor to the U.S. sweetener industry and occur in a vast range of different food products. Be eligible to enter an exhibit at both the County and/or State Fair in the agronomy project area.

Enroll for the 2024 Special Agronomy Project through 4-H Online by enrolling in the Agronomy project and contacting your local Nebraska Extension Office to order packets of seeds.  The local Extension Office will order and distribute the seeds to members.   

There are three ways to complete this at the county or state fair.  First, an educational exhibit that can be in a poster format can include what you learned.  Secondly, let your creativity go wild and create a video-type presentation explaining what you have learned, showing the growing process, etc. Finally, you can enter the crop itself. To do this, cut 6 stalks at the ground level and bound-together with supporting information about the project. For project specifications and details, be sure to go to the Nebraska State Fairbook at
