4H-Club Project

We are looking for donations to help improve the 4-H Ranch in Long Beach, CA. It houses several farm animals including but not limited to: Horses, Llamas, Sheeps, Goats, Chickens, Ducks, Donkeys, and many more.

Children come to visit the farm and learn how to feed the animals as well as gather information about each animal for personal or school projects.

The 4-H organization accepts any type of donations, whether through monetary, building materials, and/or laborers to build or improve the site.

Here's a bulleted list of what we are hoping to accomplish before the next rainy season arrives:

  • Permanently remove all weeds that are growing throughout the fields
  • Build new homes for the animals
  • Plant different species of flowers and trees for additional learning experiences.

Here's a list of on-going items that the 4-H farm can use for the well-being and welfare of the farm animals:

  • Rent
  • Feed
  • Hay
  • Water
  • Electricity
  • Gas
  • Landscape maintenance
  • Rodent and Insect control

All funds can be made payable to Los Angeles County 4-H.  To ensure that the funds are directed to support the 4-H ranch in Long Beach, please send it to the attention of:

Ranch Cardoso is a proud participant and volunteer for the California 4-H Youth Development Program. The purpose of 4-H is to help young people discover and develop their potential. 4-H encourages young people to set their own goals and make their own plans and decisions. This helps boys and girls mature and build self-confidence. By being part of a group, 4-H'ers learn to understand and to cooperate with others. These two basic skills help youth achieve a happy, useful life.
