Yvonne Babb, OSU Garden Coordinator

 

Meet Yvonne Babb, our new OSU Extension Garden Coordinator who will be teaching gardening classes in Warm Springs and Simnasho this season.  Born in Illinois and raised on a farm, she learned to work hard, raise animals and bake a mean apple pie.
Her excitement and love of gardening took root after she started learning about nature and wondering how it worked, eventually becoming a science teacher and naturalist in the southwest and Florida. 
Recently Yvonne completed her Masters in Teaching and her Master Gardener training from OSU in Central Oregon.  She currently teaches in the classroom during the winter months and runs a gardening education service, called Your Garden Companion, LLC during the growing season.  She will be a contract gardener for our program.
Her goal is to help you enjoy both the work and wonder of gardening.
Her motto is:  
“Nature is my model for living and my avenue for learning.”

Warm Spring OSU Extension is very proud of the demonstration garden and all it produced
this year thanks to Rosanna Sanders.With Sanders hard work and her passion for gardening
this was a success, producing carrots, jalapenos, tomatoes, peas, beans, raspberries,
strawberries, grapes and squash! During the School year, the demonstration garden
works with the Agriculture in the Classroom Program to start and transplant beginner

plants and during the summer it is used as a teaching tool for the SNAP Education program.
