Retail Staff & Grow Organic Kids Workshop Educator
Natureworker since 2013
Ct. Accredited Nursery Professional

My background is in education and farming.  I made it a mission to teach and learn on different farms all across the country.  Needless to say, I ended up teaching and learning on farms in Florida, New Mexico, Vermont and Massachusetts before moving to Connecticut.

English degree despite knowing that I would thrive out in a field rather than in a classroom.  It was this realization that led me to teach in alternative classroom environments.
MY SPECIALTY:  Veggies are my main interest, although I come from a background of growing herbs for medicine and eating weeds for fun.
FUN FACT:  My main specialty is working with young people on being inspired and educated by the wonderful world of the outdoors.
