Hanna LeFlore

     Hanna is in the Horticulture program at Stephen F. Austin State University.

     She has had a life-long interest in plants but did not realize she could turn her passion into a career until she took her first horticulture course and grew her first vegetable and herb garden.  

     She is particularly interested in working in greenhouse management, producing massive amounts of plants and maintaining them. She is also very interested in conserving native plants along with eradicating invasive plants and educating the public, especially in association with landscaping and maintaining natural areas. She would consider growing fruits and vegetables organically and selling locally, encouraging the importance of local business.

      She currently works at the SFASU Plantery as an assistant and continues to learn and gain experience in the exciting field of horticulture. She hopes to make a positive impact on our natural world.
