BOARD VICE CHAIR, SITE COORDINATOR AT MARY MEREDITH
Faith has been involved with Community Gardens of Tucson for more than eight years, beginning as a completely ignorant gardener pulled in by a friend at the Benedictine Monastery garden. There she was lucky to learn from George Brookbank, Darlene Schacht, Gene Zonge, other CGT mentors and fellow gardeners. She is deeply grateful to have discovered that gardening, especially community gardening, is a joyful, sanity-enhancing gift. It makes her especially happy to grow pollinator-loving herbs and flowers instead of vegetables. Faith retired as assistant director of Arizona Student Media, the umbrella department for the University of Arizona’s student-run media (Arizona Daily Wildcat newspaper, KAMP Student Radio, and UATV-3) after 31 years of experience in financial/business management, strategic planning, fundraising, marketing and advertising. She also served for 6 years on the international governing board of Nonviolent Peaceforce, which develops and provides professional unarmed civilian peacekeeping to conflict areas around the world.
