Fourth Annual Hmong New Year Cultural Festival

The Butte County RCD participated in the Fourth Annual Hmong New Year Cultural Festival held on Sept. 30 and October 1 at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds in Chico.

The BC-RCD “Education and Outreach” booth emphasized the various programs available to underserved, beginning, and limited-resource farmers through Federal NRCS programs as well as information from the Butte County Agricultural Commissioner on Best Management Practices. Brochures and information were available in Hmong and English.

Everyone who stopped by the booth was very friendly and proud to have the BC-RCD participate in their New Year celebration.

The “Test Your Water IQ” game wheel caught the attention of many curious children and adults.
