Derek Alford

RCC with Growing Places

Derek Alford is from Buffalo, New York, and recently graduated from the University of Delaware with a bachelor’s degree in Geography. He has participated in a variety of service programs that focused on urban gardening and food insecurity. With his love for travel and meeting new people, Derek hopes to contribute greatly to the Growing Places team while interacting with local community members to make as many connections as possible. Working toward a master’s degree in Urban Planning is Derek’s desired goal after completing the TerraCorps program. In his spare time, he likes to listen to music, watch sporting events, spend time with friends, travel, exercise, and learn about new cities and landscapes.
