Program Coordinator

Prior to this she was Assistant Coordinator of the Missisquoi River Basin Association, a nonprofit focused on improving water quality in Vermont’s Missisquoi watershed. During this time she conceived of and managed grants, including an outreach grant focused on telling farmer and landowner stories about successful riparian buffer plantings. Additionally, she recently completed a grant for the White River Conservation District to fund wetland restoration on agricultural land, and has worked as a historical interpreter for the Billings Farm & Museum. Jenevra is interested in helping communities sustainably interact with the natural world around them, providing assistance to those with fewer resources to do so.

Community Garden Coordinator

Linda Galvao works to create environments that nurture life, growth and community. She’s taught environmental education to kids, cared for elders through end-of-life, interned in Horticultural Therapy at the Chicago Botanic Gardens and designed and created many gardens. Several gardens created as part of Memory Care Units—where nursing home residents could feel human again—were favorites. Others created as empowering places of wonder with kids or with people with various disabilities also hold a special place in her heart.

Learning from the land and leaving it better than we found it is a strong part of Linda’s philosophy—Incorporating permaculture principles, maximizing biodiversity, keeping the ground covered with plants and/or organic mulch, incorporating features that draw wildlife and beneficial insects—are all part of her strategies for creating gardens more connected with the surrounding habitat. Linda can be reached by email: gardener@sustainablewoodstock.org
