What do you enjoy about volunteering with Each Green Corner?
I love gardening, but have limited space in my yard. I enjoy watching plants thrive, grow and produce. I enjoy comparing my garden with much larger gardens in warmer climates, which gives perspective.
How has volunteering for Each Green Corner impacted your life?
I am furthering my interests in gardening. I am experimenting with worm towers and in-situ composting on a very small scale in my yard.
What’s your favorite vegetable grown by Each Green Corner?
I have never seen a tomatillo let alone the plant. It was interesting to watch these plants grow.
I am so excited about the mission of Each Green Corner, especially with so many people who are lacking nutritious food.
