Volunteering - July 18
Jon-Mario told me I didn't have to come in this week since we had put in so much time at the Mango Festival, but I went anyway for an hour or so and cleaned up fallen leaves in the pavilion. It's just good to work up a sweat and be surrounded by plants, which is why I always think the plants are doing more for me than I'm doing for them.
I decided to start a series of profiles here on Fairchild staff and volunteers. Jon-Mario was my first interview. Stay tuned!
