One of the many projects that Memphis Area Master Gardeners are committed to is a meditation garden at the Church Health Center. Volunteers recently got the garden cleaned up for the winter and one of the Church Health Center's employees sent this note:
A Note of Thanks:
I love what you all do for our meditation garden. While you were weeding here, I spent Saturday afternoon weeding at my home and boy, was I worn out by the end of the day!
Thank you all for the laborious hours you spend for our staff, members, patients and for the community to enjoy! There's little more relaxing than a beautiful garden, a waterfall, and a beautiful fall day!!!
Assistant Director of Integrated Health Wellness
Sometimes we forget what an impact our work has on so many people. I'm thankful for all that we do in the community to enrich lives in ways that we don't even know about. We sometimes take what we do - and our ability to do it - for granted. We're so fortunate to be in a position to give to others.
