Meet Our New Educators!


Cora Hill - Horticulture and Urban Agriculture


Hello! My name is Cora Hill and I'm the Urban Ag & Horticulture educator. I graduated from Purdue with a degree in agricultural education, and I did an internship here at Allen County Extension while I was a Purdue student. After I graduated from Purdue, I was an agriculture teacher and FFA advisor at Eastbrook High School in Marion for 3 years. I enjoyed helping people learn and running the school's greenhouse with my students, and I'm excited to be in extension now and continue learning, connecting with people in the community, working with the Master Gardeners, and start offering educational programs related to urban ag and horticulture! Outside of work, I like reading, baking, gardening and my house plants.
