Volunteers Unite!

The Volunteer Recruitment Fair went well on Saturday and we met lots of new folks interested in helping out at the gardens.  Many of our veteran volunteers were on hand to answer questions and to provide more details regarding their experiences and some of the nuances of each type of volunteer experience.  Ron R. (above) was a representative for our “Grumpies”!  All of these photos were from Saturday and it was nice to have such a great response from our volunteers in terms of representation and we met some great “potentials” as we like to call them.  This Wednesday night, March 29th, at 6:30 pm, I’ll be doing a little orientation for all grounds volunteers (current and future) regarding some updates, policies, procedures, etc.  This will be held at the Parker Education Center and will only last about an hour with time for questions as well.

We had a great day at the gardens today with Larry H. working on bringing in deer netting and Larry O. bouncing between projects. Janice was in for some projects as well. Volunteers included Bob C., new Bob, Lloyd, Ron R., Jenny E., Kay, Gary S., Jim, Vern, Steve J., Marv B., Bobby K., Dick H., Bill O., Rollie M., Alan M., Dr. Gredler, Ron P. and many more.  We had a productive day both inside and outside!
