Ode to the Herb Garden Volunteers


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 Volunteers!
