Volunteer Gardening

Posted by lori . 18 Comments


Every Saturday, I share my weekly Artist Date.

I’ve volunteered in my church’s bookstore for years. Now that I work on staff in that department, I wanted to find a new place to serve. This is my new place to volunteer.

South End West Bed

I joined our landscape team…the Green Thumb team. A friend and I will tend to the perennial bed on the west side of campus.

North End West Bed

It’s really unexpected that this would be my choice, because I’m not a gardener by inclination.


I picked this team because there’s great flexibility when it comes to the time you serve.

I also thought it would be a very calming and reflective place to volunteer. A great place to take a little Artist Date.

Oh…and because my friend asked me, “Hey, do you want to be on the Green Thumb team this year?” Sometimes a good choice isn’t obvious until someone brings it to your attention.
