Marybeth, or "Mb" as we like to call her, began her involvement with WCG as a volunteer on the chicken crew and garden crew and at numerous Spring Plant Sales before joining the WCG staff in January of 2016. Mb’s prior career spanned nearly twenty years at the University of Utah in research coordination, but she’s spent every free minute since 1996 honing her gardening skills and growing vegetables, berries, fruit trees, and annual and perennial flowers and herbs. She's an absolute fanatic for tomatoes, having now grown 203 varieties of tomatoes, and she trials new varieties in the WCG Demo Garden and in her home garden every year. Her newest obsession is genetic dwarf tomatoes, which she's convinced will revolutionize tomato growing for home gardeners with limited space. When she isn’t gardening, cooking, or canning, Mb can be found with her husband and three Labradors roaming the Rocky Mountains and Pacific Northwest to fly fish, hike, backpack, paddle board, or Nordic ski.
