Hello to Margaret Rothert – the '16-'17 Garden Manager

Intro pic.jpg

Another year in the garden has come and gone, which means we have a new Jesuit Volunteer/AmeriCorps Member serving as our Garden Manager at Cultivating Roots! Margaret hails from Portland, Oregon with a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry. She worked most recently with an organization providing farm-based education in the form of field trips and summer camps – teaching kids about farming, food systems, plant biology, and more! She is excited for the opportunity to share that knowledge, as well as to learn more about gardening in the Pacific Northwest. You might spot her riding her bike around town or in the garden on Tuesdays from 3-6pm. Come over and say hi!
