“I’d always been interested in plants so I joined the Franklin Co. Master Gardener program 22 years ago. The first thing I learned was how little I knew about every aspect of gardening. Luckily, the program offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities and classes so I’ve learned a lot since then. I have also taken numerous classes in horticulture and crop science, plant pathology, turf grass, ecology, entomology and landscaping at OSU and Columbus State.

I spend a lot of time in my yard where I grow ornamentals and in my community garden plot where I grow fruits and vegetables. I live in Worthington with my husband and I have 3 grown children who, I’m happy to say, all have their own gardens now.”
