Olean gardens yield new crop of volunteers

Our efforts to reinvigorate the Olean Sensory Garden and our plans to create a Pollinator Garden are intended to provide additional learning and recreational opportunities for participants – and they are.

The two projects have led to another opportunity that we hadn’t intended or predicted but are exceedingly grateful for – an opportunity to increase our volunteer participation.

The Volunteer database has grown over recent months to 50 and we have found that many of our new helpers became interested in working with our participants when hearing of the garden projects.

So we all learned that gardens can grow more than flowers and vegetables and herbs – they can grow relationships too!
