Community Partner: Wakeman Town Farm

Alice Ely, UConn Advanced Master Gardener & UConn Master Composter, calls Westport’s Wakeman Town Farm her happy place. In addition to her role as Gardens Chair at
Wakeman Town Farm, she spreads the word about the Pollinator Pathway, and teaches homeowners how to garden, through her garden coaching business, Gardenwithalice.com. When she’s not in someone else’s garden, you’ll find her in her own, raising lots of milkweed and Monarch butterflies.
