Emily became interested in gardening after taking a food insecurity and accessibility class in college, and has come a long way from growing basil and parsley in her dorm room. She majored in Nonprofit Management at Indiana University, and was able to volunteer at a couple of gardening initiatives around Bloomington. She is the Donor Relations Coordinator at the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans. Emily is so excited to combine her love of gardening and fundraising to help continue The GardenWorks Project’s growth and impact in the community. Outside of work, Emily likes to tend to her garden, knit, and read.
