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.

This is a club member-run website.

Although it may not feel like it, summer is almost here, and it’s time for us to prepare for our summer planting. At this work day, we mulched, weeded, and generally prepared for planting.

Brr! This garden workday was a chilly one! Over the winter, the fencing that surrounds our garden fell down due to heavy winds. Before we can start our spring garden, we need to replace it! We spent a chilly morning putting up new fencing and maintaining our garden space. Soon, it’ll be time to plant spring vegetables!
