My father and I discovered the Giving Garden at Wagner Farm last week. I spend Thursdays with my father who now lives a few miles from the farm at an assisted living facility due to his Alzheimer's/Dementia. He and I became volunteers and spent a fabulous afternoon together at the garden, spreading manure, pulling weeds and, when my father grew too weary we sat together sketching and painting a watering can. My father has always wanted to serve his community. It is difficult to find ways for him to serve. The garden provides the opportunity for us to spend time together working in the sun, laughing and talking, while also being of service to our community. The interaction with the other volunteers is uplifting. I am grateful.
