Erika Wheeler – Garden Coordinator

    Since her Garden Internship in 2014, Erika has dreamed of working at the Hub. Now, as the Hub’s Garden Coordinator, she helps patrons, volunteers, and interns plant, maintain, and harvest two community gardens. When she’s not in the gardens, Erika can be found checking out cooking and gardening tools to members of the Tool Share Library, digging out a handful of worms to share from our vermicomposting bins, or giving away seeds and transplants to patrons in the pantry. Erika holds a Bachelors degree in Community Health from IU’s School of Public Health and is currently pursuing a Master Gardeners certification through the Purdue Extension Office.  She is also a certified Jazzercise instructor, though she hasn’t found a way to work that into her work at the Hub…yet.
