Being a Intern with SOS

Being at Intern with SOS

I think working in the garden is interesting and fun . I’ve learned a lot of things I didn’t know before . For example there are different ways to plant. Working in the garden has impacted me in a large way because it made me more of a caring individual and I care about the earth more than I did before working with summer solutions.
It’s really important for me to apart of the garden because it feels like I’m actually making something happen . Showing people there’s more to gardening then they think . It feels good knowing I can make something come to life with my two hands .

Our neighbor’s cat likes to hang out with her kittens in the back of the garden, where they’re protected by lots of tall plants
