The Golden Trowel Award — Totally Dig It!

As firm believers in community building, or in this case community growing, we find ourselves spending much of our spare time volunteering.

Part of this is serving on volunteer boards for non-profit organizations to help other passionate community builders shape their dreams into reality.

Right now we are President and Secretary with the Jubilee Community Gardens, which is what this post is about.

The two beautiful people in the picture above are Ken and Rose, two passionate gardeners who have been involved with JCG since it was created.

Despite being two of the more "seasoned" gardeners in the 40+ membership, they are by far the two most active. They can be found at the garden most days during the season, shoveling compost, tending the communal garden and passing on years of invaluable knowledge.

This year we felt it was important their hard work be recognized, so the Golden Trowel Award was created.

They epitomize selfless volunteerism and are the reason why Jubilee Community Garden is a success.

Thanks, Ken and Rose.

Your hard work is inspiring.

So true.

And I don't think there is a single tidbit of information about gardening that they don't know!
