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 Donna Farley-Wade.
When did you join the Colorado Master Gardener program?
I started the program January 2014.
Why did you join the program?
I joined the program to nurture my love of gardening and to develop a community focus after retirement.
What is your favorite activity?
My current favorite activities in the program are two: working as one of the team leads for the Vegetable Demonstration Garden at Hudson Gardens and working at the Pea Patch Donation/Demonstration Garden in Littleton.
What is your favorite part of the program?
What I like best about being a Colorado Master Gardener volunteer is meeting new people through gardening and sharing what I have learned about gardening with people in the community. Being a Master Gardener has led me to joining my neighborhood garden club, arranging training and writing a short article for my neighborhood newsletter.
