Hannah Goodrow: President & Honey Bees
I have been gardening for close to ten years and have enjoyed being a member of various community gardens in central Massachusetts and New Hampshire’s Seacoast. I’ve worked as a foreman on an organic meat and vegetable farm and helped high school students to develop a composting and organic gardening program on their school grounds. I am a student of permaculture design and enjoy seed saving and cultivating my own flowers, herbs, and vegetables. I look forward to introducing beehives into the Rollinsford garden with the help of my beekeeper husband and increasing the garden’s biodiversity for the benefit of gardeners, resident wildlife, and the local community.
Kristen Randall: Vice President & Cross Street Garden Path
I've been gardening most of my adult life in one way or another. I had lovely flower and vegetable gardens on my previous property in Barrington, NH. I now live in downtown Rollinsford, close to the Cross Street Garden Path. I've been one of its advocates and volunteers since Mr. Poirier passed away. I'm also currently in charge of the RGLSC's web presence. My true passion is freshwater planted aquaria and terraria, and I've connected my hobby with the garden club by designing and building an educational aquaponics display for the Rollinsford Grade School.
Michele Small: Secretary, Treasurer & Garden Manager
I have lived in Rollinsford in the village for 30 years. I have 6 raised beds, a grape arbor, 3 peach, 2 apple, and 2 pear trees along with raspberries, blackberries, asparagus, and a vegetable garden on our .25 acres! My dream is to be off-the-grid using solar and/or wind energy. I am involved with the RGLSC, because everyone should have the opportunity to grow their own food if they choose, and the community garden allows people to do that.
Kaitlin Riendeau: Community Outreach
I’m really excited to join the Garden Club this year. This is my second year as a kindergarten teacher at RGS, and I’m looking forward to strengthening the connection between the Garden Club and the grade school. My hope is that through working with community organizations our students will understand their role in the larger world and begin to understand that they can be agents of change.
Abigail Ayers: Community Outreach
I am so excited to be a part of the Rollinsford Community Garden & Local Sustainability Club! I am from Maryland originally, but after graduating from UNH, I decided I couldn't leave beautiful New Hampshire. I currently teach Kindergarten at RGS. As a first year teacher, I am excited to bring some of my experiences of the outdoors into my classroom. I hope that my students can grow an appreciation for this wonderful town in which they liv, and can become active members of their community.
