Linda Horton

Linda spent 26 years doing cancer research at Vanderbilt, specializing in melanoma and breast cancer.  As a cancer survivor, she serves on the Vanderbilt Research Advocacy Council, is the sitting advocate on numerous Susan G. Komen and Department of Defense research grants, and works as a Consumer Reviewer for the DOD Breast Cancer Review Board twice a year, in Washington D.C.  But her “get away from it all” hobby has always been gardening.  She and her father shared a deep love of irises, but she expanded into other perennials after purchasing a new home.  The first item on her post-retirement bucket list was to become a Master Gardener.  She wanted to expand her gardening into fruit trees and vegetables, as well as learn more about pollinator gardening.  After finishing the course in 2016, she assisted with 2017 and 2018 intern classes.  In addition to working at the various gardens, she enjoyed giving talks at the library and garden clubs as a member of the Speaker’s Bureau.  In 2017, she helped the intern class create an herb garden at the Franklin Farmers Market and has since expanded it into an “edible” garden, known as the Edible Uprising.  In 2019 she volunteered to serve as the Master Gardener trainee course facilitator.
