GROWMEMPHIS COMMUNITY GARDEN ASSOCIATE / email Devan

Devan serves on our team of GrowMemphis community garden associates, assisting in our hospital institution community garden in the Pinch District. Devan is a native Memphian who learned a love of gardening from her grandfather. Devan studied Material Physics at the University of Memphis where she assisted on research in solar technology development. She went on to pursue graduate studies in Creative Writing, specifically socially and ecologically conscious fiction that examines the interplay between people and place. She hopes very much to one day have chickens and a goat or two in her backyard.
