In honour of National Volunteer Week, we at the Toronto Botanical Garden are delighted to be able to profile just a few of our wonderful volunteers, who are a such great support to the TBG. In fact, if we profiled one volunteer a day for 365 days, we still would not be able to thank them all.
The volunteers featured this week are representative of the quality and depth of skills and experience our volunteers bring to their various roles. We are privileged and proud to have so many terrific volunteers, and thank each and every one of them for the valued contribution they make. Quite simply, we couldn’t do it without them.
When Lisa moved to Toronto six years ago she had a fairly large garden at hand and not much experience on how to garden in Toronto’s climate.
Becoming a garden volunteer at the Toronto Botanical Garden provided her with hands on experience through the seasons. Her interest in botany led to another volunteer activity, namely entering information about plant characteristics and growing requirements into the TBG plant database. To complete the picture of a plant aficionado Lisa recently graduated as a Master Gardener, and she is studying towards the certificate in horticulture from the University of Guelph.
Lisa helps TBG in multiple roles. We are very fortunate to have such a versatile and talented person as a volunteer. Thank you Lisa for all that you do for TBG.
