Due to a lack of interested potential members and volunteers, Sonja Seher has decided to fold her efforts to start a West Kootenay 4H club in Castlegar this year.

“Thank you to everyone who showed interest in the club and to everyone who has helped along the way to establish contacts and get the word out there,” Seher said.

“Perhaps it simply isn’t the right time and the near future will see a youth agriculture club upstart flourish in the area.”

“I looked forward to the 4H year and it pains me greatly to tell you all I won’t be involved,” she said, noting that she will continue to work as director of the Kootenay Food Strategy Society, but will likely be working outside of the Kootenays this summer.
