Nic and Leigh Allen
Co-editors of the Upstate Chapter Monthly Newsletter and Board Members
Nic and Leigh joined the Upstate Chapter of the SCNPS in 2021. After graduating from the College of Charleston they lived in Florida, Pennsylvania and North Carolina before returning to SC in 2020 and settling in Central; Nic’s hometown. After settling in their home in Central they set out to create a native plant habitat on their property and have spent many hours planting and establishing their landscaping. They welcomed their first child in July of 2021 and after life settled down a bit they took on a more active role with the Upstate Chapter. As the editors of the monthly newsletter and members of the Upstate Chapters media team, Nic and Leigh look forward to serving the SCNPS and are enjoying learning more and more about the benefits and beauty of native plants with each passing season.
