Jess has studied passionflower, orchids, turfgrass, corn, and even fungus while getting their degrees. Jess’s love for gardening was cultivated in their childhood garden and compost pile. They are passionate about growing food locally, a champion of sustainability, and a first-rate weed puller! You can find them carving pottery, soldering stained glass, cuddling their cats, or building houses with Habitat in their spare time.
Jess says: “I love the holistic approach to health that Skyterra advocates. By creating welcoming green spaces in our lives, we can become more in touch with our bodies, minds, and with the world we live in.”
