Host on Airbnb since 2013
  • Identity verified
I have a degree in Biology with a focus in Human and Natural Ecology from Emory University. In 2017-2019, I designed, installed, and managed multiple garden and landscaping projects at Childs Elementary School, including a rain garden, vermi-composting system, rain water collection system, garden club, seed lab, and garden-to-classroom cooking experience. In 2018, I spent time at the Occidental, CA, Arts and Ecology Center learning to design/integrate gardening into curriculum. In 2019, I completed a Permaculture Certification course through Sheltering Hills Design. I have also taken multiple Master Gardener and Purdue Extension Gardening Courses.

A portion of the proceeds from this experience will fund neighborhood and community projects. Currently, we are raising funds to build a bicycle repair and rest station on our property.
