About Freida

Frieda Pearce is a Master Gardener through CCE Columbia-Greene. As her undergraduate minor was botany, she has always been interested in flora, however, her exposure centered around tropical and subtropical species. After a career in research and teaching, she has now reverted to discovering North American habitat, its species, and their maintenance. She has developed a passion for vegetable gardening, growing trees and natives, and trying to manage their viability without the use of pesticides and repellents. She divides her efforts between Columbia County and Riverside Park in New York.
