Suzanne has several wonderful attributes but one that is on top of the list is her infectious energy level and commitment to this committee. Suzanne's accomplishments are extensive from being past co-chair,chairing the Town Square Maintenance project, overseeing the greenhouse at Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women and much more.
Suzanne works tirelessly behind the scenes making sure Town Square gardens are watered, weeded and looking beautiful. At the correctional center, she has taught classes and given them a new skill set. She organizes spring and fall plantings in town and make sure the women from the center were included in the plantings in town. She makes every project fun as leading up to the Garden Show, she and Renee did skits to get people interested in donating items for the Clothes Line Sale.
