Michelle Hawkins is a volunteer coordinator at Teglia’s Paradise Park Community Garden.
“The garden is my therapy. It does provide a need for people who do need food, and love to garden, but there’s also that very special part of us as humans who love to dig in the dirt and I think it’s very therapeutic, very spiritual to do that. This is especially great for people who live in apartments or don’t have their own garden space. We have a compost area out here for people to come out and compost. We’re a great resource for people in those positions.”
