    anthony_nov22.jpg My name is Anthony Avilla. I am a Garden Assistant and Senior Stevenson Affiliate. I am an anticipated History major with a minor in Philosophy. Gardening has provided a good way for me to feel invested in the College community. I love the idea of helping to create a refuge where one can feel welcomed and refreshed. My interests include weight training, playing video games, finding new music, discussing philosophy and One Piece. 
    keana_spring2022.png.jpeg Hi, I'm Keana Wolcott and a third year at UCSC. I walked into the Stevenson Community Garden one day last year, looking for something to clear my head from the stress of moving to college. I loved how welcoming the Garden Staff were, and therapeutic gardening there was, and applied to become a Garden Assistant! Now you can catch me working in the Garden throughout the week. Feel the same, come stop by, or email me at
    roe_nov22.jpg Roe Ororsky, (They/She) Environmental Studies and Economics Major. I would love for the Garden to be a community meeting place flourishing
    with life! Specifically, I want to support the Garden's plants by getting the compost program up
    and running again! (It used to turn out a ton of compost per quarter!) Additionally, I would like
    to create more opportunities for LGBTQ2+ members in Stevenson and abroad to meet each
    other and build connections and community!
