Watching plants grow is one of my greatest joys. Even as a kid, when I only had a little cactus to call my own, I loved it. I’m from Omaha, Nebraska, where I earned a degree in Agricultural Studies. I went on to work for an industrial food corporation but left because I wanted to pursue a job that aligned more with my values. I believe that gardens can bring neighbors together and foster a community’s mental and physical health.
