Susan Ousterhout, Chair

   Meeting the FFGC mission statement, “…instilling in our youth the love of gardening and the respect  and protection of the environment.”, is done through Junior Gardeners, either as a single Youth Activity or   as a Junior Garden Club.  Junior Garden Clubs consist of 5 or more youth, Pre K-6th grade, which meet 5   or more times a year.  Youth Activity is any other program or programs that involve youth and does not   meet the Junior Gardener Club requirements.

  Passing on our love of gardening, design and all things related to our environment is a way of ensuring   the continuation of our passions and the love of our world.  The wonder and joy of this can be seen in the   eyes of our youth.
