RoncyWorks Green Team Profiles
Carol Holland has been gardening with RoncyWorks for 5 years. She maintains three gardens located at 465, 392 and 319 Roncesvalles. In addition, Carol regularly monitors the gardens on the street, tending to them as she goes along. She is quick to help other gardeners who need advice or an extra hand. The RoncyWorks team refer to Carol as an unsung hero and their Garden Angel. We appreciate her dedication immensely.
Carol’s appreciation of Roncy’s sidewalk gardens is what enticed her to garden with RoncyWorks. “I originally saw a sign in a store window that RoncyWorks was looking for volunteers,” said Carol. “I had always admired the gardens on the street and I wanted to help.”
In addition to the gardens, Carol has enjoyed working with her fellow RoncyWorks Green Team members. “I find the other volunteers very inspiring. We have a group of very interesting, and knowledgeable people who really care about the street.”
Before joining RoncyWorks, gardening had been apart of Carol’s life for many years. “I started gardening with my mother when I lived in our family home. When I bought my first home, I created a garden in my empty yard.” With all her experience, Carol shares her expertise with other gardeners, as they do with her. “Since starting, I’ve continued to learn from the other volunteers in the Green Team.”
Thank you Carol for beautifying Roncesvalles!
