Cerena Childress has been an avid gardener since 2002. Although not a long time gardener she has learned a lot in a short time through intense online research and ‘hands on’ learning from her 49 fellow gardeners at the Pilgrim Terrace Community Garden. Ms. Childress became a Certified Master Gardener in 2007 and that very year started talking to Master Gardener classes on vegetable gardening. She is an active community speaker, speaking for the Santa Barbara Organic Garden Club, to Santa Barbara Neighborhood Exchanges, at local Seed Swaps on seed saving, to local gardening clubs, groups, and La Sumida Nursery. Learning continues! This year's experiment is tomato grafting!
She is a strong Permaculture, Food Not Lawns and Lasagna Gardening enthusiast. Ms. Childress is also the author of the Green Bean Connection, a monthly newsletter and blog that includes up to date gardening information and advice. She wrote The Garden Post for Santa Barbara View for 2 years.
