Julio was absolutely great. As were the others that assisted and gave direction. I did not get the name of the lady at the check-in table or the man who opened the gate and allowed my son to help him transplant the asparagus plant. We really enjoyed it and will be back again.

I really enjoyed volunteering at the Community Garden. The group members were very knowledgeable about the different plants and flowers. At the completion of the volunteer activity everyone participant was given a variety of different plant and herb cuttings to take home.

I was happy to work with Tom and my fellow gardener, but began to feel badly midway through. I hope to return with a better attitude and mindset next time. To anyone reading this comment, the garden is beautiful.

I was one of the leads for the Rain garden Swale planting. We added 4 types ofnative grasses, planted some flowering perrenial. Our planning team coordinated very well. The volunteers did an amazing job. Then, we had a nice soaking rain.

I really enjoyed gardening with the other volunteers. Even though it got pretty tiring towards the end it made me appreciate the people who work on this stuff all the time and realize the importance of all members of a community working so everyone can enjoy the garden. I would definitely say that when I am old and retired I would like to have a garden of my own so that I can find enjoyment in knowing I created something and all the hard work it took to make it.
