Join the Fun

September 6, 2022

As the 4-H agent for Fairfield County, I’m looking forward to a busy fall of school engagement! I will help coordinate two elementary school gardens as well as facilitating environmental education lessons for classrooms at the Midlands STEM Institute and the Fairfield Career and Technical Center. This work utilizes my educational background in natural resources and offers hands-on engagement of topical science standards (with prep work and clean-up provided). If you know a classroom teacher that would enjoy supplemental activities such as hatching a chicken egg, dissecting an owl pellet, or assessing water quality, please reach out to to discuss collaboration opportunities!

For families looking for after-school engagement, there is no better time to join 4-H than in the fall as the 4-H calendar begins in September.  4-H membership offers access to projects where students dive deeper into interests ranging from agriculture to nutrition. Project books will guide participants through relevant tasks and completed books can be submitted for regional and/or statewide recognition and prizes. Learn more about 4-H here.  Check out the upcoming 4-H calendar here.  Register in 4-H Online here.

Members may also form and/or join clubs where members work together to complete community service projects and engage their interests. Clubs benefit from resources from the 4-H agents, Clemson Extension network, and the national 4-H organization. All a club needs are enthusiastic volunteers and at least five students, so if your family is interested in clubs, please contact

As a county resource, I am always happy to discuss community engagement projects to meet students’ needs and interests. I serve as a youth development expert for families, schools, and other family-centered organizations. Please consider completing the Fairfield 4-H survey (students, parents, and community members) to help guide the direction of 4-H initiatives within the county. Thank you for allowing me to serve you and work with the kids of your community!
