–Emily Carter, High Rocks AmeriCorps Member, Hillsboro, WV

Hi All! Emily here with High Rocks in beautiful Hillsboro, West Virginia. I just kick-started my 6 months of service with AmeriCorps working in the gardens and assisting with Grow Appalachia. I participated in Grow Appalachia with my mother last summer and fell in love with High Rocks! I am so excited to see what I can bring to the program over the next six months, as well as the impact it will have on my life.

I have always loved being in the garden, from the child-like joy of getting your hands dirty to the great sense of accomplishment from growing your own fresh food. I look forward to sharing our community’s success with you all this summer!
