In late May, the Baton Roots team happily welcomed SK Groll (they/them) as the new Baton Roots Program Coordinator of Operations. SK is passionate about education, place-making, plants, and joyful community spaces. SK received their bachelor's degree at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH, and has a master's degree in Anthropology from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA.
When they aren't working with The Walls Project and Baton Roots, you can find SK listening to poems at Eclectic Truth Open Mic & Poetry Slam, skating with Red Stick Roller Derby, or lounging about with their dogs.
Come by Baton Roots farm to see all the amazing work SK and the team are doing to bring food access, agricultural knowledge, and, of course, joy to Baton Rouge!
