Amanda came to us as a summer fellow courtesy of the OC EnviroAlums committee. In her fellowship, she focused on revitalizing the learning garden at the George Jones Memorial Farm. Amanda identified and transplanted beneficial wildflowers already on the farm into the garden and planted new blueberries and herbs. With this project, she aimed to make the garden a space to grow perennial food and medicinal plants, and where people could become familiar with native plants.
