Elvira became a Junior Crew member at the Wardensville Garden Market in September of 2020. She currently works in the Market but has plans to join the Bakery team! This is her senior year at Hampshire High School, where she enjoys Social Studies. She also enjoys learning how to cook many different types of food from different cultures – so much so she aspires to go to culinary school to become a chef.
Market Manager Shenae reiterates the impact of Elvira’s presence, “It has been such a joy to work with Elvira! She has been nothing but kind and inviting since my first day. She has a hunger for knowledge that is inspiring and is always looking for ways to grow while also including those around her.”
The Junior Crew bring our mission to life, and make as large of an impact on their mentors as we do on them!
None of this would be possible without our generous donors and loyal patrons. If you would like to join us in making an impact, help us Hire and Inspire more local Appalachian youth by donating today at www.wardensvillegardenmarket.org/donate
My name is Natalie, I’m one of the original 10 Junior Crew! I currently am completely my M.S in Integrated Marketing Communications at WVU while working for our Marketing Department here at Farms Work Wonders. It has been a full circle of growth for me and I couldn’t recommend this opportunity to local youth, enough!
