Simone Johnson

My name is Simone. 

Growing food, medicine, flowers, saving seeds and foraging with friends are all things I’m really interested in.  I also love dancing, traveling, getting outdoors and traversing various art worlds.

I was the Sanctuary as the Collard City Growers Garden Coordinator during the fall of 2019. I was excited to join the long line of folks who have created and tended to the garden spaces over the years! I relocated outside of Troy beginning in 2020.

Our activities change during each season.  If you know anyone in your network who might be able to help, please let us know!

If you have any questions about the garden and/or volunteering, please don’t hesitate to reach out to at
