I started volunteering at the Calyx in 2018. I love plants and flowers, and even though I am not a plant specialist, I have learnt so much over the few years about the plants in the displays.
Volunteering at Calyx is so interesting and rewarding, as I can share what I learn about the plants and their pollinators with the visitors. It brings me enjoyment, and I have a lot of fun. I have also volunteered in the New Year’s Eve program over the last couple of years which has also been a great experience.
What I love most is learning new things, making new friends and being able to give back to our community. Smiling and being happy will lead us to a healthy life. Make volunteering a part of your daily life ingredients.
What have you been doing during the year due to Covid-19 restrictions to keep busy?
I have been busy gardening, walking my dogs, reading and spending special time with my family.
