This is the home page for the Fairfax City 4-H Community Club, a member of the Fairfax County 4-H Program!
Our club offers many exciting activities for our youth ages 9 – 19. We meet every second Tuesday of the month, although individual activities may meet more frequently.
We garden, cook, write, cycle, do pottery, help in the community, and much more. Contact us to find out how you can join.
Don’t forget to bring gifts to our next meeting! We will be wrapping gifts to donate to the Katherine Hanley Shelter for teens in temporary housing during the holidays. Community service is always a great way to spread holiday cheer! We would prefer many smaller gifts, but do what feels right to you.
Congratulations to all of our new officers! This marks the start of a great year for 4-H, and we wish you all good luck in your posts. This year, we have Aurora as president, Maryam as vice, Alexa as secretary, and Kelly as treasurer.
The 4-H meeting on October 10th will be the BBQ Harvest Party at the garden plot in South Run Rec Center. Please look for the sign up genius to provide sides and dessert!
Fairfax 4-H Community Club’s garden was featured in the Summer 2017 Parktakes magazine!
After two weeks we went back to paint our pottery. Here are a few of them in progress. They have to be processed for two more weeks before we can get the final products. They look like they will turn out great!
Thanks Mr. Kaneshiro for the great cooking demo of fried rice. We learnt how to cut up the veggies, stir fry the meat just right, and the best way to prepare the rice. Delicious!
We had a great time making bowls at our Jimmy Potters Pottery Class!
First we centered our clay, then we formed the clay into a circle. We learned how to spin the wheel, to use our thumbs to shape the clay, and much more.
Thanks to everyone at Jimmy Potters for creating such a fun experience for us!
Don’t forget that the meetings for March and April have been pushed back one week to the 3rd Tuesday. See you there!
If you signed up for pottery, make sure you are ready for the first session this month at Jimmy Potters’ Studio.
Don’t forget to sign up for our cooking demonstrations! So far we have plans for making a Japanese, a Chinese, a Peruvian, and a Mexican dish. We’ll also learn to make mozzarella from scratch.
