Little Farms Garden Club has several community projects ongoing in the Potomac Area. The club is actively planning for the Garden Therapy Program in which members of the club work with young people with physical and mental disabilities to create holiday decorations. The program will be held at the Potomac Community Center on Dec. 12.

In addition to the Garden Therapy Program, Little Farms Garden Club also participates in the annual decoration of Strathmore Hall for the holidays, and the club is also collecting gift cards from both local merchants and private donors to give to families in need for holiday spending.
