I spent over 100 hours in designing and building the garden. I volunteered from 5/10 - 5/12. I joined the Rivanna Conservation Society board on 2/13. As a board member, I guided a kayaking trip down the Rivanna river that raised money for the RCS and consulted with the RCS about monitoring bacteria levels in streams, creek restorations, and community engagement.

I currently collaborate with three other members and outside contacts to design and build a garden in College Park, Maryland.
