Garden Manager/Garden Instructor: Beverly Kerr
Beverly manages 3 full-time community gardens in Eloise and Florence Villa. She specializes in food/edible gardens, community gardens, and backyard gardening for residents. She is responsible for onboarding/assisting with partnership organizations to expand and raise awareness to the importance of sustainable food source education.
She teaches students at the Eloise Arts Center Community Garden and the Public Education Partners Community Garden in Florence Villa/Winter Haven. We often say at Doors2Change, "Miss Beverly can throw dirt into the air and it blooms before landing."

Patty leads the Follow Up & Love Committee. This committee of beautiful ladies is responsible for making phones calls and checking on the needs of those we serve at Doors2Change (and wit the Arts Ensemble partnership program in impoverished communities) She and her team lead our prayer group and from love they walk with those in need to better places in life.
Miss Patty is love in every definition of the word. We are blessed to have her lead our team in ministry and prayer for residents and students that we serve.
