I am happy indeed, for garden volunteers started to work! It is clear that there will be still a lot of work motivating people to come, but the first ones have already come to the second informational meeting.Among them were even some who have already begun to help in the garden!
It is interesting to hear what their motivation for volunteering in the garden was.They mostly put the desire to help others and community as high as their need to learn more, as they mostly are passionate nature lovers already.Wish to meet other people or to work outdoors and have some recreation was also accentuated.
This group of volunteers is not big, but it is very important-they actually are the very first senior garden volunteers in our city’s botanical garden ever!
P.s.:on the picture is :
