Vidalia Onions

We hope you will support our Vidalia Onion Fundraiser. This is our only fundraiser and it promotes Georgia’s Official Vegetable and signature crop, the famous “Sweet Onion.”

The proceeds are used to provide educational programs, materials, 4-H scholarships, and awards.  Please support Columbia County 4-H.  If each 4-H family purchased just one bag, it would make our fundraiser a success.
