Jane Garrod 1918 – 2014

It’s with a heavy heart that we post the passing of Jane Garrod, one of the founders of The Clover Foundation of Santa Clara County. Jane helped build this foundation with a team of like-minded, community leaders who’s main goal was to preserve the tradition of youth agriculture education for future generations. Jane served on the board until her retirement last year at the age of 94, completing 34 years of dedicated service.  Her sense of humor, passion for agriculture, and her commitment to leave things better than she found them will be well-remembered. Jane’s tenacity to ask the hard questions and her support of youth leadership development made this foundation what it is today. She will be missed, but a part of her will always live on in the spirit of The Clover Foundation, the college scholarships given, and the support we provide to 4-H and FFA youth participating in agriculture education in the Silicon Valley.
