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.
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 product.6
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.
What a fun meeting we had today! We did a warm up character description exercise, set our goals for the project, and then wrote some more about the character we created in the first exercise. Everyone came up with such creative ideas.
We voted to donate gifts and cards to teens at the Kathrine K. Hanley Family Shelter to add some cheer to the lives of homeless teens over the holidays. With every thing that we have in our lives, it is hard to imagine not having a home to go to at any time, and especially in the winter. We made gifts of new personal items like earbuds, clothing, perfumes, colognes, cosmetics, candy, and so on. The things we thought we would miss if we had no home for the holidays then we gathered to wrap them and to make cheerful cards to go with them.
Don’t forget to sign up for the activities that you want to participate in for this year! Also, remember to bring supplies for our December meeting. We will need paper, markers, and other decorating materials.
