It's About Thyme garden center has been so wonderful to me as they have allowed me to come whenever I am available to help water, transplant, and trim the plants. Yes, it is extremely hot, especially as I have to wear a long sleeve shirt to protect my skin from the 100 degree sunshine and jeans to avoid being eaten alive by the mosquitos!! However, despite the heat and mosquitos, the employees are so nice and the owner is always enthusiastic to teach me about the plants - I love it!
Perhaps one day I will start my own garden...hm...we'll see. Once I have my own little backyard where I can actually do this would be the first step!
|Ah, the greenhouse - so full of life & beauty!|
|Transplanted some Rosemary - smelled absolutely wonderful!|
There is a special satisfaction and joy in volunteering. I've never done so much volunteering in my days as I have during my time here in Austin. I'm very thankful to have the time to have such experiences. I hope to continue assisting local businesses and organizations even after my hours are completed.
May sincere giving never go out of style..how can you support your community?
