Director of Curriculum
Laura Ruby has been gardening since she could walk. She was an avid garlic grower before graduating from the University of Colorado with an Environmental Science degree. Soon enough, she combined her love of gardening with working with children and landed as the Garden Coordinator for the Growe Foundation’s Garden to Table Program. Here, she worked with teachers to help them get their classrooms out to the gardens and growing. Soon after, she started YummyYards to help parents continue the gardening experiences with their families at home. As a recent transplant to WNC, Laura is thrilled to join the Roots Foundation in getting more kids outside and into the gardens!
