Alex Aleshire has been playing in the dirt for as long as she can remember! As an avid edible gardener with a background in child development, she has a passion for connecting people with the earth. After designing "Outdoor Classroom" gardens for several schools, she became a Los Angeles County Master Gardener and an Edible Landscape Trainer. Designing functional, organic and sustainable gardens is just one of her passion. So is helping people learn how to maintain their gardens using simple organic methods.
Recently, Alex has join the EnrichLA team. EnrichLA is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to not only build edible AND sustainable gardens in every Los Angeles county school, but to also provide Garden Rangers who teach STEM based garden classes directly in the garden. "Helping children gain respect for where their food comes from and teaching them that their choices about food affect their health, the environment, and their communities, is a great passion of mine"
When Alex isn't gardening, she's over the potter's wheel, painting, camping and taking care of her kids, hubby, pups, cats, chicks, bees, turtle and fish! Whew! Thanks for visiting!
