Vanessa Young Instructor and Gardening at USask Coordinator

Vanessa Young is the leader of the Gardening at USask outreach education programming. With degrees in Science and in Education and background in business and communications, she is well suited for her position. In addition to her outreach teaching with Gardening at USask, she also teaches for the Prairie Horticulture Certificate Program and manages various agronomy professional development programs. In her spare time, Vanessa also does freelance curriculum development work, practices hort therapy, and attempts to manage three teenagers and three dogs. Besides her utter obsession with mulch, she also enjoys hands-on building projects that wildly exceed her actual skill set.
