Vanessa Young Instructor and Gardening at USask Coordinator

Vanessa Young is the leader of the Gardening at USask outreach education programming. A professional agrologist (PAg.) with degrees in both 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 develops and delivers holistic horticulture activities, 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 obsesses about mulch. A relentless optimist, she also enjoys hoarding crafting materials, starting hands-on building projects that wildly exceed her actual skill set, and almost anything that involves sunshine and water.
