_Jennifer has been gardening since she was a little girl, and is excited to share her knowledge and love of plants with campers at Farm in the Garden Camp this summer. She has degrees in botany and horticulture and is currently working on her Massachusetts science teaching license. When she’s not working at the Berkshire Botanical Garden as a youth educator or writing gardening articles, Jennifer can be found pulling weeds in her vegetable garden, playing the piano, or bike riding with her nine-year-old son.
_Erin is originally from Ohio, where she received her Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education from the University of Toledo in 2004. Since then she has traveled the East Coast with her husband and 2 dogs, finally settling down in The Berkshires. As an educator with experience in the Reggio Emilia Philosophy, Erin strives to create powerful and meaningful relationships between the children and their environment. She has a special love of science and nature, and works to bring out the natural born explorer in all children. She loves to read, camp, hike, paddle, and tend her little tomato garden. She is excited to be with the The Farm Education Collaborative this summer, and is looking forward to working, farming, and learning alongside your children.
