Martha Worcester joined Community GroundWorks as Office Administrator in late 2011, after serving on the Board of Directors for 5 years. Her knowledge of the programs, staff, and constituents made for a relatively easy transition. She has a degree in Journalism and worked in publishing and event management for several decades. After living in many parts of the country Martha chose Madison as "home" in 2005 and quickly discovered Troy Gardens and the co-housing community. She hiked the land weekly in 2006, watching her first home being built.
Martha grew her first vegetable garden at 9000 feet in a deep Colorado valley where she developed a fondness for parnsips which could actually survive June, July and August snow.
