Volunteer Spotlight: Donna Farley-Wade

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.
