The Author

Hello, my name is Cecilia Saavedra. I received an Associate’s degree in Horticulture, Land Systems, and Management- Small Market Farming in February 2017 from Metropolitan Community College.  Currently, I am working towards a Bachelor’s degree in IT Innovation with a minor in Chicano Studies from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I plan to finish my degree in December 2019. ** crossing my fingers**

After graduation, I plan to create apps and have a chance to open my own organic farm with my boyfriend. One of my goals is to grow organic fruits and vegetables at an affordable price and make sure low-income individuals in our community will have the same opportunity to eat healthily and organically. I enjoy farming, teaching individuals how to garden, cooking, photography, volunteering, and traveling.

I view my education as a patchwork quilt of academic training and practical experience that grows with my every accomplishment. These, collectively, are a representation of who I am as a student, employee, and life-long learner. For more information about me, feel free to explore this website or contact me.

  2. Gardening is something I enjoy trying but always find that I have way too many other interests that put it on the back burner and one thing about gardening is that you have to stay on top of the situation or before you know it you are growing nothing but weeds. I can appreciate the time and dedication that you must put into your endeavor and maybe one of these days gardening will ‘stick’ with me. For now I’ll just keep making my attempts and have a bit of fun in the process. 🙂 Keep up the great work and I can’t wait to see what you grow in the future. Stay safe!

  3. Hi, Cecilia!
    Thanks for visiting my little blog. Majoring in library science and horticulture is actually an excellent and valuable match. One of my best friends is a librarian and keen amateur horticulturist and is now in an awesome position at one of the premier botanical gardens in the country. Best of luck to you!

    1. Hii Grower, Sorry for the late reply. :3

      You’re very welcome. Thanks for telling me about your friend. I’m going to work twice as hard now, and hopefully I’m able to finish my major in horticulture and library science, within the next 4 years.. Thank you! 😀
