Hannah Curry, Head Gardener

Hannah is responsible for managing the restoration and maintenance of the historic garden at Gaiety Hollow as well as providing oversight of the Lord & Schryver-designed gardens at neighboring Deepwood. Hannah also supervises the LSC volunteer gardeners and helps support the organization’s community programming. She graduated from OSU with a BS in Environmental Science, minor in Botany and has 12 years of experience working as a field biologist in the berry industry and as a research technician at the USDA and various OSU laboratories.

Like many of us, Hannah began gardening at a young age alongside her grandmothers and mother who instilled in her a true appreciation for the great outdoors. She loves growing native plants, showy flowers, and all kinds of vegetables and herbs in her home garden here in Salem. In her free time, Hannah likes to hike, play the piano and guitar, read historical fiction, and research anything science-related. She enjoys spending time with her two young sons, helping them build Lego sets, playing games, camping, and attending their many baseball games.
