 Blair Norman
Blair Norman has lived in Boulder for 11 years, hailing originally from Atlanta. She has had a plot at the Community Gardens for 10 years and this is her 4th year as a garden leader. Blair enjoys preserving fruit in the fall and when she saw the abundance of apples in Boulder in 2014 she was thrilled to find Community Fruit Rescue and join the steering committee, where she now represents the Boulder Bear Coalition. Blair wants to help find ways to preserve the fruit for a more stable shelf life so it can continue to benefit our community after the fresh fruit is gone. She works as the admin/customer service/order packer for a startup in Boulder and enjoys camping, skiing, hiking and biking with her family.
