Beth Saunders became a community gardener when her big plans for a large home garden were disrupted by moving into a house with a shady yard. Since then, she and her spouse have enjoyed taking their young kids along for the ride as they experiment with what gardening methods work for their low-key lifestyle.
After graduating from Boston College with a degree in English, she has been in nonprofit marketing communications since 2004, with a focus on social justice. She focuses on the KidsGardening social media strategy, website, newsletter, and blog to expand garden-based learning throughout the country.
Beth grew up in Western Pennsylvania where she was scared to go in her mother’s garden because once a snake was spotted there. She did, however, eat from the garden and her mother’s prolific peach tree.
She looks forward to adding to her collection of kid-sized gardening tools.
