Hannah Goodrow: President & Honey Bees
I have been gardening for over 12 years and have enjoyed being a member of various community gardens in central Massachusetts and New Hampshire’s Seacoast. I am a New Hampshire Master Gardener in my internship year, and experiment with permaculture on my own little Rollinsford homestead. I’ve worked as a foreman on an organic meat and vegetable farm and have collaborated with high school students as part of a composting and organic gardening program. I enjoy seed saving and cultivating my own flowers, herbs, and vegetables.
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.

I’m really excited to join the Garden Club this year. This is my third 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 second 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 live, and can become active members of their community.
