At home, Maggie and her fiancÃ©, Jason, enjoy working on projects that give them greater self-reliance and lower utility bills, such as making rain barrels, drying laundry on a clothesline, and preserving the bounty of their garden harvest–as well as enjoying the antics of their small flock of chickens: Roxanne, Betty, Fern, Lucy, and Ethel. Maggie also teaches backyard chicken workshops, in the hope that more people will decide to include city chickens as part of their home gardens–a truly local source of healthy, yummy eggs!
It is with great excitement that Maggie joins the staff at the Fall Creek Gardens: Urban Growers
Resource Center. She believes that gardens bring people together and are the perfect place to find better health, new friends, delicious food, and a precious bit of peace in a busy city.

About the founders
At the request of Jeremy Efroymson, Angela Herrmann, MA, Earth Literacy, St. Mary-of-the-Woods College, Terre Haute, Ind., founded Fall Creek Gardens: The Urban Growers Resource Center, in April 2011. Fall Creek Gardens evolved to its current form from what was known as the Community Garden Resource Center, originally launched in 2009 by Tricia Mera.
Fall Creek Gardens was renamed to reflect the location of the project and to recognize that sometimes growers grow more than plants for food.
Angela leaves Fall Creek Gardens in good hands as she pursues projects beyond Indiana over the next year. Angela can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
