Central Gardens truly reflects its many volunteers whose care and nurturance pour over the gardens each day. Over one hundred volunteers have given countless hours this season. Have you taken time to notice the small details? Leveling of hardscape, pruning, planting, deadheading, watering, mowing, garbage detail, cutting flowers, arranging flowers, closing and opening the gates each day, repairs, fixing fountains, digging plants for plant sale, fundraising for garden party, contacts to vendors, getting the mail and correspondence, guidance for HUGS team, painting donation box, marketing, organizational skills, leadership, social media and the list goes on and on. As a small token of appreciation, we hosted a a Volunteer Appreciation on Sunday September 13 honoring these individuals. We value the in-kind donors to our event- Michael's Cookies, Lake Liquors Wine & Spirits and Cookies, etc.
Volunteers have these characteristics in common: they have a fearless approach, have infinite patience, they can think creatively, eager to take initiative, stay humble about their work, driven by passion and can work in teams. We are blessed to wonderful volunteers. They have been the backbone of Central Gardens for twenty years!
