Volunteering at the Heirloom Garden Show

Every year, we go as the 'experts' to interpret our areas, to teach people what we know about the particular aspects of history and nature that we have been assigned. And each time, we learn more from the people we talk to: Details, stories, related information. I have never volunteered that I did not get back more from it than I put into it. It is a gift indeed to be allowed to serve in such a capacity. And as a parent, it is a gift indeed to have children who love doing it and to have places like Garfield farm that welcome them.
