Terri Cain

Terri Cain’s volunteerism dates back to her days as a teenager in Michigan. After graduating from high school, she spent a summer working for OxFam in London. She gave her time to groups including the Sierra Club, Easter Seals, and the Red Cross before setting in Guilford in 1996. More recently, her resume of service includes directing the Pilgrim Fellowship at First Congregational Church in Guilford, which helps guide teens toward being more compassionate through mission trips and other service activities. She’s also served on the Guilford Community Television board, has been a vice president of the Guilford High School Theatre Arts Parents group, and a member of GHS Connections. Terri is co-founder of the Hubbard Community Garden, as well as its volunteer manager. Known as the “Hub,” the organic garden provides food for the Guilford Food Bank and the Community Dining Room and also includes a children’s garden, four plots offering modified access, and 25 community plots. Last year, Cain also developed a classroom garden at Cox Elementary School and she led 2nd graders in gardening projects over the course of the year.
