I have been volunteering with the Outagamie County Master Gardeners since 2010. Camping and gardening with my family got me interested from an early age and I continue to take every opportunity I can to get outside. One of my major interests is identifying wildflowers which enables me to combine my love of nature and backpacking/hiking. In addition to exploring Wisconsin and Upper Michigan I have branched out beyond the boundaries of our gardening zone to see what’s growing in Montana, California, Oregon, Washington and Arizona. My list of possible trips continues to grow! I’m also interested in perennials, learning more about natives and vegetable gardening especially in reaping a huge harvest from a small space.
