Veronica Bao Thao

Veronica Bao Thao (she/her/hers) is always growing as an intersectional environmentalist, retrospective being, and as a hopeful, happy individual. At the Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden, as the Edible Garden Program Manager, Veronica oversees the edible garden and facilitates educational programs with schools, volunteers and the surrounding local communities. Passionate about how to intentionally and inclusively connect communities to the outdoors in her life, through her work, and at her work place and culture, Veronica is thankful and enthusiastic to experience the Rising Leaders Fellowship as a 2021 program participant. πŸ™‚
