Healthier people make stronger families and vibrant communities.
The Northeast Iowa Food & Farm Coalition has been formed to begin implementation of the strategic plan designed to build a stronger local food and farm economy in Northeast Iowa. The Coalition’s mission is to support the development and marketing of locally grown agriculture products to enhance the lives of local citizens.
Pinebluff 4-H Camp
Winneshiek County is the home of the well known Pinebluff 4-H Camp. This year's calendar was full of many area 4-H camps, county club camping adventures and many family reunions.
Pinebluff 4-H Camp is 115 acres of pine-covered bluffs, beautiful trails, and wild river located in northeastern Iowa's Winneshiek County.
Pinebluff is owned and operated by the Winneshiek County 4-H Foundation in cooperation with Iowa State University Extension. It is a camp for youth, an outdoor laboratory for schools, a retreat site for families and other groups, and a valuable forest and wildlife habitat. It is available by arrangement for any youth or adult group to use.
Each year, 4-H'ers, parents and Foundation Board members gather to clean up and get the camp ready for the upcoming camping season - see the group in action.
