Why We Garden
From volunteer Mary Jo: I've enjoyed working in the garden for multiple reasons. Volunteering is one way I work to keep my life in balance and I think the on-site garden is a wonderful project with so many benefits for the volunteers as well as the community. Teaming up with my friend Alice has given us a chance to keep in touch since we no longer work in the same department (or the same building), and scheduling weekly time at the garden is also helping me increase my activity level this summer. It has also been quite a challenge - keeping up with the weeds this year has been difficult, but I'm determined to keep trying!
