Hello, I am Alexandria Hancock and I am excited to say that I am going to be working with the Union County Community Garden Coalition as a summer intern. I will be helping plant, weed, harvest, run errands, and care for the gardens. I am a student at the University of Tennessee Martin pursuing a degree in Physical Therapy, where I also compete on the UTM Rodeo Team. Gardening is a project that I have been involved in for as long as I can remember. My family plants a garden each year, not only for fresh foods, but also to preserve our harvest for a great money savings. The Union County Community Garden Coalition is a wonderful program that I am very excited to be working with this year. This is my first year working with the gardens and I am looking forward to giving back to my community.
