We have had numerous requests for people to share what they have and aren't using, or no longer need.  We have some folks who are looking for some great used tack or supplies.  We even have some people who want to just sell off their old things and be done with it.  We will try and see if we can get everyone working together and help grow our program.
If you have a need, a great item, or whatever, please email Stephanie sbowden@iastate.edu  with your 'ad' and we will post here.  We do ask that once it's no longer a need or offer, that you let us know so we can remove it and keep our list updated.

Competent, caring adult volunteers are an Essential Element of the Iowa 4-H program. Volunteers contribute their time and talents to 4-H and in return 4-H has the responsibility to provide them with the positive youth development knowledge and skills they need to effectively work with youth.
