Volunteer of the month: Lekshmi Krisnan

lakshmiWhat is your favorite part of the garden?

It simply makes me happy to watch everything grow in front of my own eyes and being a part of it provides me tremendous satisfaction. I also love harvesting FIGS, one of my favorite fruits in the garden.

What does the garden mean to you?

The garden offers me the chance to give back to our community and also an opportunity to be close to nature. Additionally, it is a part of healthy sustainable living and also an initiative to protect Mother Nature.

How did you get involved in the garden?

Living in an apartment in Phoenix after having grown up in tropical climates, surrounded by natural gardens, I have always been on the look out to dig some dirt and get sweaty. When I saw the community garden on my way to work and started volunteering, it provided me the chance to get my hands dirty again. The best part of the garden and its community is that everyone is so welcoming and encouraging.
