The Fleming County community beautification program was the hit of the summer with new bedding plants and shrubbery being landscaped at Simons Middle School and the Fleming County Extension Office. CYFAR core youth worked with local landscapers to design a beautiful flower garden quilt. A CYFAR core youth member helped to choose the design of a pinwheel in conjunction with Pinwheels For Prevention/Child Abuse Awareness. CYFAR youth choose the colors of yellow and pink with marigolds and impatiens respectfully.

CYFAR core youth also created a beautiful garden on the grounds at the Youth Service Center at Simons Middle School. They planted rose bushes, hostas, corabell, and shrubs in a beautifully landscaped design that is displayed at the front of the Youth Service Center. The CYFAR core youth are responsible for the maintenance of these gardens and tours of the garden.
