Lucile Morehouse, age 12, is an active 4-H member in Choctaw County, Oklahoma. She is the current president for her local 4-H club, shows animals, and participates nationally in martial arts. She just received the Oklahoma 4-H Youth Development 2023 Enhancement Grant for her application called “Bee Box”.
Lucile will be assembling and distributing 600 seed packets for free. She will also offer free seed packets to ship anywhere in the United States after you pay a $1 shipping fee. When you get the seeds, you will plant them to produce flowers for pollinators. This seed blend is made for North America. Once the flowers bloom, they will feed the pollinators a more diverse diet. By producing more flowers, this could help fight against starvation, disease, and loss of resources to our pollinators.
Lucile will be giving presentations in southeastern Oklahoma and distributing seed packets for free. To schedule a meeting at a school, business, 4-H or other club please call (580) 743-6992.
If you would like a seed packet, please email: Beeboxcustomercare@gmail.com.
Thank you to our sponsor Oklahoma 4-H Foundation for this grant opportunity. To ensure future years of this service project she will be accepting donations for next year. Questions about the project? Email: Beeboxcustomercare@gmail.com
