The last Herbal Work Study brought in 4 volunteers (Jane,
Barry, Josie and Sarah) to help weed and
groom in the Herb Garden – one Saturday
a month gains me 4 to seven new helpers. I also
have a few “regular” volunteers: John on Mondays, Lisa on Wednesdays,
and Kathy on Fridays. Then there are is Evelyn who will come gather stinging
nettles when their harvest time is near and I can’t possibly take care of that
one more task.
What am I talking about? Volunteers. Volunteers are one of the
main reasons the Botanic Garden is such a nice place. If it were not for our volunteers, well, the
weeds might just take over, our plant sales wouldn’t have such a nice selection
of plants, and there would be a shortage of smiling faces in the Garden.
I know that I can’t do without them! Thank you, especially, my Herb Garden
