I retired a few months ago and decided that I want to do something meaningful by volunteering. I was fortunate to have a long career in the prisons working as a horticulturist. I loved it! They paid me to keep in shape! I looked around for places that may need my skills and came here. My parents lived here and I always appreciated the care that they received. I can see how such a huge campus with so many gardens needs special attention. I love the way the gardens have been designed - especially the one with all the fountains - brilliant! Its really beautiful. I can come a couple of times each week to prune, plant, fertilize - I have the energy and God gave me the skill. I love to serve this way. It works both ways - for the seniors and for me.
