Emily (she/her) is thrilled to join the Wasatch Community Gardens team as the Youth & School Gardens Program Director. Growing up in Salt Lake, she gained a love for the outdoors by helping in her family’s orchards and gardens. She obtained a degree in Anthropology and fed her enthusiasm for the Earth through exploring the interconnection between humans and natural communities. After working for years as the Outdoor Education Director at a nature preserve in California, she is excited to bring her passion for equity and inclusion in environmental learning to children and families back to her home community! When she’s not gardening, she’s likely hitting the trail with her partner and three dogs.
