As the Garden Grew, So did this Volunteer
When our Marsh Road Boys & Girls Club had the opportunity to start a garden, we didn’t have to look far for someone to help out with the new program. Elizabeth Miller was already volunteering with us on a regular basis, and she couldn’t wait to get involved with this new project.
“I love the whole garden idea,” she said. “The children might not be exposed to gardening these days, and I love that I can be the one to teach them.”
