Rose Garden at Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

I started volunteering for Brooklyn Botanical Gardens on July 14, 2015. Every week, I will devote 3 to 5 hours on Tuesday to help staff in the Rose Garden.

On my first day, I weeded flower beds. Work was cut short on July 14 due to early afternoon rainfall. Before leaving, other volunteers and myself were provided with photo identification badges.
