After graduating from college, Amy Aldenderfer left her home in St. Louis and headed to Elizabethtown.
Becoming the Hardin County Extension Agent for Horticulture 18 years ago was a good fit, she said, considering she started gardening at a young age.
She took after her grandfather who always was a good gardener. She started working in the family vegetable garden when she was as young as 6 and found it fit her personality.
She was pleased to find out when she went to college she could make a career of something like that.
