Volunteer Spotlight: Hans Kaufenberg

Colorado Master Gardener℠ (CMG) volunteers are a dedicated group of individuals who are knowledgeable and passionate about sharing gardening, landscape and horticulture education. This month, we are highlighting Hans Kaufenberg!

I joined the Colorado Master Gardener program in 2019 as an Apprentice. I have been interested in the program for many years. I finally joined because I was able to apply the experience toward continuing education hours required for my job.

My favorite activity was volunteering at the Silo Park demonstration garden. I enjoyed tinkering in the garden for a good cause. I also enjoyed the company of the other volunteers. It was a fun group and I hope to do more in 2020. 

The thing I like best about the Master Gardener program is the chance to interact with new people to solve gardening problems. This goes for working with fellow volunteers at demonstration gardens and with the people contacting the office with questions. It was fun to discuss, research, recommend and implement solutions. Thank you for having me and I look forward to continuing to volunteer as a Colorado Master Gardener.
