by Jill Schwartz

Samantha Wetzel’s roots to gardening run deep.

As a child, she loved helping her mother pick vegetables from their backyard garden in northern Virginia. She was fascinated with watching things grow.

Samantha, who goes by Sam, brought that passion to her own backyard when she grew up, creating gardens at the various places where she lived.

And she brought it to Honduras, where she and her husband were Peace Corps volunteers. Under the hot Latin American sun, she grew peppers, garlic, beans and more.
