Our Volunteer for the Season
One of the greatest strengths of Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden is our enthusiastic group of volunteers. From horticulture to our special events to educational tour guides, our volunteers generously give their time here at the Garden. Some volunteers come occasionally and others come to volunteer on a regular basis. Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden recognizes one volunteer each season whom we feel has done an outstanding job for the Garden.
Our Volunteer for this season has been a volunteer here at the Garden since 2010. She has been a life-long gardener, a master gardener and has served as an officer with the Guilford Horticultural Society and Sunset Hills Garden Club. She has volunteered at our off-site nursery with propagating and potting, in our Garden with planting, weeding and pruning, with our plant sales and, each year, she helps with the installation of our annual bulb display. But her current task is a big one and one she is well qualified for since she is a lover of books and the retired librarian at UNCG. She has been busy inventorying, sorting and organizing over 500 books on plants, gardening and horticulture that have been donated to the Garden for our library. Our library is almost ready for folks to begin checking out a book or two! She has also sorted duplicate books which are available in our Gift Shop for folks to purchase.
Our Volunteer for this season is Nanny Foster. Please join us in thanking Nanny for all that she does for the Garden. We are truly blessed to have her as part of the Garden. As a small token of our appreciation, Nanny will receive a gift certificate to a restaurant in downtown Kernersville to enjoy!
