Kelly grew up hiking the Sierra Nevada Mountains, where she developed a love for plants and a passion for nature. This passion led her to work in landscaping for four years, filling her days with plants, soil and design. After becoming a mom with her first child, Kelly began teaching play and sensory based nature classes through Tinkergarten. Over the years, Kelly’s involvement with the Earthroots community has been as a participant, a donor, and now, as an assistant instructor in the Ecoliteracy program. Kelly feels deeply enriched being a part of Earthroots and loves being able to give and receive smiles and share some nature knowledge with the kiddos!
