Catherine Shavers Long has resided in the Roanoke Valley for the past 25 years. She is a wife, a mother of three and attends Grace Covenant Church. Although she has a B.S. in Accounting from Elon College (University), she was called to work with youth through 20 years of owning and operating a home daycare and the Good Guides Youth Mentoring Program. It was the latter job that got Mrs. Long interested in gardening. Catherine is honored to be the Lead team member of Seed2Seed Roanoke.
